Last month, we published our final news story and
bulletin on infohep.
infohep in 2013, in partnership with the European Liver Patients’ Association
(ELPA). Our aim was to develop a high-quality online resource to increase
awareness of viral hepatitis, its treatment, and the needs of people living
with viral hepatitis in Europe.
Since infohep’s launch, we’ve published nearly
950 news articles, reported from 41 conferences, and sent out 106 news
bulletins, some of them in multiple languages. We’ve also published factsheets
and information pages on hepatitis and its treatments, as well as a global
database of hepatitis services, and held webinars on news and expert analysis

infohep have chosen to redistribute funds towards other ongoing or emerging
health conditions and NAM is unable to support infohep as an ongoing standalone
All our news,
including conference reporting and email bulletins, information pages and
country pages will continue to be accessible as an archive on infohep.org.
will continue to report stories on hepatitis and HIV co-infection. You can sign
