The November ELPA Policy Meeting attracted not only ELPA member representatives but also delegates from stakeholder organizations. We were happy to meet with Arturas Povilaitis from the Stasys Lozoraitis Hepatitis Association, Lithuania, Ivan Ivanov from the Thalassaemia International Federation, Aleksander Chamurdziev from the Thalassaemic Organization in Bulgaria, Erika Matauizaite from the Eurasian Harm Reduction Network and Dmytro Koval from the Stop Hepatitis, Ukraine. In addition to the patient community representatives we had representatives from professional organizaitons like WHO, the WHA, EASL and industry representatives from MSD, Abbott and Janssen.
The ELPA Policy Meetings give patient representatives a working medium where facts, ideas and plans for future collaboration are put on the table for open discussion. Below you will find the slides presented at the event.
