Our goals include increasing screening rates for all three viruses, vaccination rates for human papillomavirus (HPV) and hepatitis B, and awareness of treatment options available for hepatitis B and hepatitis C.

The summit will educate attendees about the link between hepatitis B, hepatitis C and liver cancer; facilitate discussion around challenges in reaching at-risk populations for screening and vaccination; and help identify opportunities for improved policy and advocacy efforts in Philadelphia.

The briefing will include an open panel discussion with renowned health care providers, patient advocates, community health centers and local government officials. Anticipated summit attendees include viral hepatitis advocates, community health educators, and city officials.
