Q&A With Antons Mozalevskis From the World Health Organization: Immediate Action for the WHO's Collaborating Centre on HIV and Viral Hepatitis

One of the biggest challenges in the fight against HIV and viral hepatitis has been the lack of knowledge some countries have about the spread of the diseases and ways to monitor the problem before it gets out of hand. The World Health Organization has been working to combat this issue in Europe and other parts of the world.

Antons Mozalevskis, from the WHO Collaborating Centre on HIV and Viral Hepatitis, and Jeffrey Lazarus, University of Copenhagen shared that the major problems identified were that some countries are still lacking information on chronic Hepatitis C surveillance as well as data on disease outcomes.

The two spoke at the European Association for the Study of the Liver's 50th Annual International Liver Conference in Vienna.
