The official launch of the Auckland Statement was a significant, emotive moment at the 8th Australasian Viral Hepatitis Conference. If you missed it, don't worry: you can watch it now on the Auckland Statement website.
But the Statement doesn't end at the launch: Sign the petition, have your voice heard.
This Statement is an urgent call to action for parliamentarians, governments, health departments and the community at large to come together and curb avoidable deaths caused by viral hepatitis.
Stop new infections. Stop the rising death toll. TAKE ACTION NOW.
