Side Meetings


This year’s Summit includes a number of side meetings.

These have been developed with partner organisations to present additional areas of content around hepatitis that haven’t been covered within the main agenda and its focus on implementing the Global Health Sector Strategy on Viral Hepatitis (GHSS).

Unless clearly indicated otherwise, all side meetings are open to all delegates and there is no need to register for these sessions. Delegates can simply attend at the times below, which all take place outside of the running times for the main agenda.

All side meetings take place in the WTC Forum on Level ‘M’ in the Chagal and Matisse rooms.
