Dear interested members,
The World Hepatitis Day is fast approaching and will be a unique occasion for patients, health ministers, policy makers, civil society, public health specialists and pharmaceutical companies to come together to address the global viral hepatitis epidemic.
We want to use this opportunity to showcase the unified voice of hepatitis patient advocacy groups across the world and highlight the devastating impact that viral hepatitis has on peoples’ lives so we are creating a powerful video of our members that will create an effective call to action.
The video will be an inspiring collection of short clips that will be shown on our website and in the welcome session of the WHA Pre-Summit Member Conference (August 31) and the opening ceremony of the World Hepatitis Summit (September 2) and you can be part of it!
To feature in the video all you need to do is record yourself – in your own language -responding to questions on the impact of hepatitis and what change you want to happen. The guidelines attached provide more information on what we want you to say, how you should make your video and how to send it to us.
Please send us your video by July 28. The sooner we receive your video, the more likely we are able to include it in the collection which we will be used for a film.
We look forward to receiving your submission and your contribution to this powerful video. If you have any questions regarding the video, please do not hesitate to get in touch. This is your opportunity to tell the world just how important tackling hepatitis is.
