SESH Global, in collaboration with the WHO, launched the “#HepTestContest” to identify and evaluate innovative Hepatitis B&C testing campaigns developed by actors across the world. A majority of individuals infected with viral hepatitis worldwide do not know that their status. Testing campaigns play a crucial role, especially with therapies becoming increasingly effective and affordable. A multi-sectoral panel of judges from various fields chose finalists, who presented their models at the 2016 International Liver Congress led by the European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL). Sixteen entries from this contest were directly included in the 2017 WHO Hepatitis Testing Guidelines.
