Viral hepatitis impacts Indigenous peoples throughout the world at much higher than average rates, harming their physical, spiritual, emotional, social and economic health. This is often a result of the lasting impacts of colonialism, inadequate access to immunization and treatment, and lethargy on the part of governments to provide culturally-safe healthcare to Indigenous people. To highlight this issue and effect change, Indigenous people, including those with lived and living experience of viral hepatitis, Elders/Knowledge Holders, clinicians, researchers and policy-makers will gather on Treaty 6 Territory and the Traditional Homeland of the Métis for the third World Indigenous Peoples’ Conference on Viral Hepatitis (WIPCVH).

The 2020 WIPCVH will feature some of the leading hepatitis experts and Indigenous leaders in health and wellness.
