Highlights Direct from the Conference Committee

“I am excited about the confluence of great ideas and speakers from all facets of contemporary viral hepatitis in Australia and New Zealand – translational sciences, epidemiology the community sector and clinicians. When diverse groups of highly capable people get together and exchange ideas, great things happen!” – Krispin Hajkowicz

“Professor Ed Gane is a national treasure in New Zealand and has done arguably more than any other individual to make the wonderful era of low toxicity, highly effective hep C treatment a reality. I am excited to hear his insights on where interferon-free hep C treatment is heading next” – Krispin Hajkowicz

“The program shows a great commitment to tackling the complex issues - stigma, criminalisation, working across diverse communities, developing people-centred models of care - totally looking forward to it.”– Carla Treloar

“July 28 is now recognized as World Hepatitis Day, one of only a few designated world health days. Globally, viral hepatitis is responsible for 1.4 million deaths yearly and is the 8th highest cause of mortality globally, mainly due to HBV and HCV infection with the remainder from hepatitis A and E. The Basic Science Program has a focus on the elimination of viral hepatitis as a public health threat and how this can be achieved. Will the new HCV antivirals be able to control HCV without a vaccine? We can reduce liver disease progression due to HBV infection but what can we do to eliminate the virus? The contribution of the other agents of viral hepatitis, HAV, HDV and HEV to public health will also be considered.” – Scott Bowden
