The ACHIEVE Coalition sent this open letter to the Minister of Health of Romania today. The letter, co-signed by EATG as a member of ACHIEVE, calls the Romanian government to prioritise viral hepatitis in health policies of the European Union when acting as the President of the EU Council in 2019.
“Your support would be invaluable in helping the European Union, its Member States and countries across Europe to deliver on their commitments to eliminate hepatitis B and C by 2030 as set out in the WHO Global Strategy and WHO Europe Action Plan. Action in this area will also complement implementation of the EU’s UN Sustainable Development Goals’ (SDG) commitments to end the epidemics of AIDS, tuberculosis and combat hepatitis” – states the open letter.
