World Hepatitis Day 2017

On World Hepatitis Day 2017, we organised our semi-annual Hepatitis C Patient Conference, bringing together patients, campaigners, and professionals to share their experiences and perspectives on eliminating hepatitis C.

The conference was called “Speak Up”, emphasising the need to challenge stigma surrounding hepatitis C. Throughout the day, many former and current patients spoke about their experiences. Presentations from Professor Graham Foster and Dr Magdalena Harris about ongoing developments in treatment and hepatitis C research added to the afternoon.

Current and former patients also took part in a video project, sharing their personal experience on camera, and visited our onsite polaroid photo booth as part of the global NOhep campaign
