Welcome to the African Hepatitis Summit 2023

We are delighted to invite you to participate in the 3rd African Hepatitis Summit (AHS2023) which will bring together civil society organizations, policy makers, global funders, medical professionals, and other stakeholders working in the field. The event provides a unique opportunity for all stakeholders’ consultations towards elimination. Additional pre-summit and side events may be organized by other external groups and organizations

To advance discussion among diverse stakeholders across Africa and motivate action towards viral hepatitis elimination in the region, the first African Hepatitis Summit (AHS) was held in Dakar, Senegal in 2016 followed by the second edition held in Kampala, Republic of Uganda in 2019. It was developed as a large-scale, regional meeting to advance the viral hepatitis agenda and provide a platform for a broad hepatitis community to share ideas, experiences, and best practices in addressing the challenges brought about by viral hepatitis.

The key outcome of these summits contributed to the first scorecard to examine hepatitis prevalence and response in the World Health Organization (WHO) African region. In view of the new Global Health Sector Strategy 2022-2030, with a mid-term goal in 2025, it becomes imperative for stakeholders across Africa to meet and discuss the approaches towards scaling the elimination of viral hepatitis across Africa and putting Africa on track to meet up with the elimination targets.

The Africa Hepatitis Summit, 2023 with theme “Putting Africa on Track towards Viral Hepatitis Elimination”

AHS 2023 will be held for (3) three days which will be covered in plenary sessions, satellite side meetings and Exhibition that will be open to all delegates.

Looking forward to seeing you in Abuja Nigeria.
