Swiss Hepatitis Symposium 2020

Elimination 2030 - 10 years to go. The importance of data and politics
30. November 2020, 13:30 - 16:30 | ONLINE

Covid-19 has the world still tight in its grip. The pandemic acts like a magnifying glass, showing us what is going wrong in public health. However, we can also learn from it in order to eliminate viral hepatitis.

It has become abundantly clear in recent months that scientists have been struggling to get their voices heard during the coronavirus pandemic. Health authorities and politicians in turn were not always successful when it came to evidence-based decision-making.

At the same time, the importance of good, up-to-date surveillance of the epidemiological situation has become clear. The same applies

to hepatitis B and C: we lack data to measure our progress in the fight against these infectious diseases.

We will be reflecting on how we can improve the data situation in Switzerland and will attempt to close some of the gaps. Moreover,

we will discuss what policy makers need to make the right public health decisions.

We look forward to an exciting and inspiring afternoon.

Alle Referate werden auf Englisch gehalten.

Die Veranstaltung wird von der Schweizer Gesellschaft der Fachärztinnen und Fachärzte für Prävention und Public Health (SPHD) mit 3 Kreditpunkten anerkannt.
