Viral Hepatitis in Asia and the Pacific: Towards Elimination as a Public Health Threat documents the narratives, innovations, and scope of work in the Asia-Pacific region in starting, consolidating, and moving towards the elimination of viral hepatitis. The Asia-Pacific region is disproportionately affected by viral hepatitis, accounting for two-thirds of the global burden. Countries from low-, middle- and high-income economies have adopted different strategies to address combating and eliminating viral hepatitis. The successful experiences of the Asia-Pacific region are valuable for other regions, especially the middle- and low-income countries moving towards the achievement of the 2030 goal of elimination.

Strategies discussed include integrated approaches, negotiating universal access to diagnostics, and treatment options, including vaccines. Content further covers the critical barriers to achieve the 2030 targets for elimination of viral hepatitis and how to overcome them. This is the perfect reference for all hepatology researchers and elimination policy advocates who are dedicated to joining the fight for the 2030 goal of the elimination of viral hepatitis as a public health threat.
