LJWG Annual Conference 2020
Your role in eliminating hepatitis C in London
The 2020 LJWG annual conference was held on the 27th January 2020 in Westminster and brought together over 200 hepatologists, drugs service staff, peer support workers, commissioners, public health specialists, nurses, pharmacists and others to discuss how London can achieve its ambition of eliminating hepatitis C. With speakers from the Greater London Authority, Institute of Global Health, NHS England, Public Health England, NHS Substance Misuse Provider Alliance, the Hepatitis C Trust and many others, the day provided a fantastic space for challenge, solution-finding, and networking.
