The Fourth World Hepatitis Summit has called for a reset and re-invigoration of the world's response to hepatitis. Delivered at the close of the Summit on 11 April, the Declaration outlined three key steps:

  • Simplified  and decentralised hepatitis responses which are integrated within health systems that are designed for the people they serve and developed in partnership with affected community.
  • An acceleration of  access to testing, treatment, peer support and care, which is affordable and accessible to those that need it.
  • Immediate increased prioritization of hepatitis elimination by governments.

The Declaration, delivered by Summit Chair and World Hepatitis Alliance past-President, Danjuma Adda, said the low levels of diagnosis and treatment and increasing hepatitis deaths, is "not acceptable". It called on all stakeholders to stand with the WHA "to make the elimination of viral hepatitis a reality by 2030".
