Draft for Consultation
World Health Organization, 2015
The need for a global health sector strategy on viral hepatitis stems from the scale and complexity of the hepatitis pandemic, along with growing recognition of its massive public health burden and the huge opportunities for action. To date, few countries have seized these opportunities; action has tended to be fragmented and inadequate. The time has come for a coherent public health response that identifies effective services and delivery approaches, brings together key programmes and establishes clear institutional responsibility and accountability.
