    A lunchtime roundtable organized by ZeShan Foundation in partnership with EndHEP2030.

    Achieving the 2030 hepatitis elimination goals will require all stakeholders to work together. The objective of this session is to provide a platform for the participants to discuss their needs and what they can offer. All participants will receive a questionnaire prior to the meeting. We will review the responses according to the following categories: Public health organizations (national and international), donors, philanthropic foundations, industries, civil society, and government entities. We will then use a facilitated discussion (with the audience) to explore the types of partnerships that are needed to achieve the elimination target. This session is recommended for all who want to contribute to helping shape future partnerships. Attendance is by invitation only and all attendees are required to RSVP.
