ELPA reports: Burden of Hepatitis C in Europe

The European Liver Patients Association, ELPA, launched two key reports at it's 2015 annual meeting in Brussels: “Hepatitis B and C: An Action Plan for Saving Lives in Europe” and the “Burden of hepatitis C in Europe – the case of France and Romania”

These key reports further highlight the importance of tackling the hepatitis burden with decisive measures both at the national and the EU levels. The reports – Hepatitis B and C: An Action Plan for Saving Lives in Europe and the burden of hepatitis C in Europe – the case of France and Romania are milestones in ELPA’s work and will serve as the cornerstone for the work patient advocates will carry out over the year.

The launch event gathered experts from WHO, EASL, VHPB, the Correlation C Network, and patient representatives from the 27 ELPA member countries, together with other stakeholders working in the field of liver disease.
