Watch our latest webinar! Hepatitis delta virus continues to be a largely neglected disease in many different parts of the world. The difficulties with screening, prevention, and linkage to care that are present with hepatitis B are even more pronounced in the case of hepatitis delta, and effective treatments are not accessible in many regions. In this webinar, we hear from experts around the world who will speak to some of these issues, including specific challenges with screening, available treatments, and methods for managing hepatitis D when effective treatments are not available or accessible. Speakers include Dr. Zaigham Abbas, Professor and Head, Department of Gastroenterology at Dr. Ziauddin University Hospital in Karachi, Pakistan; Dr. Jose Debes, Associate Professor of Medicine, Division of Infectious Diseases and International Medicine at the University of Minnesota Medical School in the United States; Dr. Richard Njouom, Head, Division of Virology, at Centre Pasteur of Cameroon; Dr. Domingo C. Balderramo, Provider of Gastroenterology and Digestive Endoscopy Services at Private University Hospital in Cordoba, Argentina; Dr. Raymundo Parana, Professor of Medicine, Gastro-Hepatology Unit, School of Medicine, Federal University of Bahia in Salvador, Brazil; and Dr. Marina Carmen Berenguer, Hepatologist and Professor, Universitat de Valencia, Spain.
