The year 2022 was one of consolidation for us at The Hepatitis Fund. We grew our team, expanded our activities and engaged with new partners. We made our voices heard at key gatherings to galvanize action towards hepatitis elimination. We broke down silos through new collaborations beyond the hepatitis field and focused on strengthening our partnerships, leading to several advocacy-driven activities to better integrate hepatitis within the global health architecture.
Our first round of grants has been a success, delivering promising results that confirm our belief that catalytic investments are the key to achieving a positive impact. This has led to new partners and donors joining us: they are impressed by the clear investment case around hepatitis elimination and our key role in driving positive change. The tangible results of the programmes we fund show that by investing in viral hepatitis elimination, we can save lives, build resilient health systems and support economic growth.
