It is a great pleasure and an honor to extend to you a warm invitation to attend 2018 APASL Single Topic Conference on Hepatitis B Virus Taipei (2018 APASL STC Taipei).
As shown by the theme of this conference: “Towards Hepatitis B Elimination----Following Hepatitis C Cure”, we expect to establish a platform allowing the collaboration among experts from hepatitis C cure experience to benefit hepatitis B management. On the other hand, Taiwan is proud to be world’s first country to implement universal HBV vaccination program for infants 32 years ago, and since then, the HBV carrier rate among young adult under 32 years old has been largely decreased from 10-15% to less than 0.8%, below the 1% set by the World Health Organization (WHO) .The success of HBV vaccination may project a future for eventual HBV elimination.
2018 APASL STC Taipei will provide a wonderful forum for you to refresh your knowledge base and explore the innovations not only in HBV’s elimination process including diagnosis, treatment for cure and outcome, but also the experience from the cure for chronic hepatitis C. Also, it will strive to offer plenty of networking opportunities for you to meet and interact with the leading clinical professionals and researchers, friends and colleagues as well as sponsors and exhibitors.
