GENERAL INFORMATION
The 2016 International Conference on Viral Hepatitis (ICVH 2016) is sponsored by the International Association of Providers of AIDS Care (IAPAC), in partnership with the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) and the International Association for the Study of the Liver (IASL).

The annual conference is a forum for the presentation of state-of-the-art approaches to the clinical management of viral hepatitis, specifically hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection, with the aim of supporting a wide variety of clinicians, including non-liver specialists, as they integrate scientific advances into real-world clinical practice settings.

ICVH 2016 is taking place at the Mission Bay Conference Center, which is located at 1675 Owens Street, San Francisco, CA 94143-3008.
 

PROGRAM
ICVH 2016 is focused on expanding the universe of clinicians who can manage hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) monoinfection and coinfection with HIV. The conference aims to improve patient outcomes by educating clinicians on practical, state-of-the-science strategies to optimize HBV and HCV treatment in a variety of clinical settings.

The conference Co-Chairs are Vicente Soriano, MD, PhD (Hospital Carlos III, Madrid, SPAIN) and Norah Terrault, MD, MPH (University of California, San Francisco, USA).

Featured topics on the ICVH 2016 program include:

  • Viral Hepatitis: A Global Snapshot of Challenges and Opportunities
  • HBV: When Will It Be a Curable Disease?
  • Translating Clinical Trial Promise into Real-World HCV Treatment Success
  • New Tools for Assessing HBV and HCV Disease Severity, Progression, and Regression
  • Non-Alcoholic Steatosis: What Is It and How Do We Treat and Monitor?
  • HCV and Organ Transplantation
  • Treatment of HCV Cirrhotic Patients
  • Treatment of HCV for Prevention of Transmission
  • Recent Advances and Future Prospects in Therapy for Hepatocellular Carcinoma
