Get Ready For World Hepatitis Day!
Welcome From The GHS 2018 Committee
Dear colleagues,

It is our pleasure to personally invite you to join us at one of the most established global liver meetings: the 16th International Symposium on Viral Hepatitis and Liver Disease (ISVHLD).

Over the 45-year legacy of the ISVHLD Meeting, much has changed, and so must the meeting. With renewed vigor and an exciting new focus, the ISVHLD Meeting will be delivered as the 16th ISVHLD Global Hepatitis Summit, in Toronto Canada June 14th–17th, 2018.

The Global Hepatitis Summit will bring together top clinicians and researchers from around the world. In addition to delivering the highest quality scientific program, the upcoming summit will add a new dimension; an important focus on global public health.

The 16th ISVHLD Global Hepatitis Summit promises to be a recharged meeting not to be missed!
