Hep-C Community Summit

Date: Tuesday 18 September
Time: 9am – 5.15pm
Location: Lisbon, Portugal
Cost: FREE for INHSU 2018 Delegates

The HEP-C Community Summit will bring together people from the affected community, advocates, researchers, healthcare providers, harm reduction practitioners, and policy maker to discuss and to develop enduring cooperation for building the road to HCV elimination.

The summit is built in close cooperation with the International Network of Hepatitis in Substance Users (INHSU), which organizes 7th International Symposium on Hepatitis Care in Substance Users in Cascais (close to Lisbon) 19 – 21 September 2018. As part of this symposium, INHSU usually works together with community-based organizations to hold a Community Day prior to the symposium. In 2018, INHSU is partnering with the HEP-C Community Summit to organize this day. We encourage participants to take part in the both the HEP-C Community Summit and the INHSU 2018 symposium to enable information and knowledge exchange and to create linkages between community, advocates, researchers, practitioners, and policy makers to enhance HCV elimination efforts.

The HEP-C Community Summit will highlight the needs, current gaps and opportunities to make HCV treatment available for all people. The summit will also present and discuss community approaches for testing and treatment for HCV (and other diseases), and discuss and agree on further community action and advocacy.

As a result of the meeting, common advocacy activities will be agreed on between involved networks and organisations.
