WHO Eastern Mediterranean regional action plan for the implementation of the global health sector strategy on viral hepatitis: 2017-2021

This plan is structured around five strategic directions: 1) leadership, good governance and advocacy for a coordinated and integrated response; 2) information for focused action; 3) interventions for impact; 4) systems strengthening for equitable access; and 5) financing for sustainability. Under each of the strategic directions, specific actions need to be taken by countries and WHO. These actions will be implemented in a phased manner with different starting points for different countries, depending on the status of their response to viral hepatitis in 2016.
