Swiss Hepatitis Symposium 2023 - presentations are online

The theme of the Swiss Hepatitis Symposium 2023 was the simplification of care for people with viral hepatitis. Simplification has many faces, as various speakers emphasised. Click here for the presentations.


Living with hepatitis

If you are diagnosed with viral hepatitis, there is no reason to panic. As long as the disease is not advanced, you can lead a normal life. It is important that you find out about your disease.


We need you!

We would be very pleased if you would support us in our efforts to maintain the Swiss competence network in the field of viral hepatitis and thus make progress in the prevention and treatment of people with hepatitis. We are still looking for donors to implement the ambitious project of a Swiss hepatitis strategy.
