The WHO Elimination Strategy calls for a major increase in diagnosis of chronic viral B and C infection; 30% by 2020 and 90% by 2030. Today, only 11% of those living with viral hepatitis are aware of their diagnosis. Without a massive scale-up in diagnosis, treatment rates will fall and infection rates will rise.
With 300 million people living with viral hepatitis unaware of their status, diagnosis is key to reaching elimination and so, for the next three years the World Hepatitis Alliance (WHA) will be focusing on finding these ‘missing millions’.
As part of this, WHA wants to gain a better understanding of the nature of barriers to diagnosis within countries and therefore is undertaking a global consultation, in the form of an online survey. The information gathered will help to inform future programmes designed to find the ‘missing millions’ who are currently unaware of their diagnosis.
Your views and experience are of great value to WHA and so we would like to ask you to complete this online survey, which should take no more than ten minutes to complete. Please click the button below to be directed to the survey.
If you would like to learn more about the survey or the WHA Find the Missing Millions programme then please contact Jessica Hicks at WHA firstname.lastname@example.org or Gayle Higginson at DJS Research.
DJS Research, an independent research organisation, has been commissioned by WHA to host this online survey.
