World Indigenous Peoples' Conference on Viral Hepatitis 14 - 16 September 2014

We are holding an International Indigenous Viral Hepatitis Meeting on 14-16 September 2014 in Alice Springs, Australia, back-to-back with the 9th Australasian Viral Hepatitis Conference on September 17-19. The vision for the Meeting is to be a forum to examine the health burden of viral hepatitis in Indigenous peoples, to share common experiences and innovative solutions and to develop new relationships which enable collective responses into the future. This is intended to be the first of a series of such meetings.

 
The program will reflect the breadth of work underway in this area, spanning human rights, development, community engagement, basic science research, clinical service provision, healthcare delivery and public health and prevention. The involvement of Indigenous peoples in all aspects of the project will be key to its success.
