World Hepatitis Day Outreach Activity

Viral Hepatitis Elimination day (May 11, 2023 in Ottawa)

Viral Hepatitis Elimination day (May 11, 2023 in Ottawa)

The Chinese Hepatitis B PSG was invited by the CanhepB (Canadian Hepatitis B Network) to participate in the second annual Viral Hepatitis Elimination Day organized by Action Hepatitis Canada. To help achieve the WHO vision of viral hepatitis elimination plan by 2030, Action Hepatitis Canada has been actively involved in engaging with the government and policy makers to address the WHO plan.

On behalf of the Hep B PSG, the Elimination Day was attended by Colina Yim and patient representative Larry Wong, who is one of the founding members of the Chinese Hepatitis B PSG. The Day started with a Parliamentary Breakfast where a few of the government officials addressed the viral hepatitis issues in Canada. Colina and Larry also got the chance to meet representatives of other organizations including the Canadian Liver Foundation, Manitoba Harm Reduction network,  Prisoners’ HIV/AIDS Support Action Network. After the breakfast meeting, Larry joined 4 others delegates , and spoke to speak at the Press Conference about his hepatitis B experience.  The Day ended with a roundtable consultation with the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) who was seeking public consult on the renewal of their national STBBI (Sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections) Action Plan. Colina and Larry were able to voice to the government the importance of increasing hepatitis B awareness and education across Canada.
