3rd LA Viral Hepatitis and Co-infection Workshop 2014

Huge City of Sao Paulo
Dear Colleague,

After the very successful first two editions of the meeting, attracting around 300 participants, it is our great pleasure to announce the 3rd Latin American Meeting on Treatment of Viral Hepatitis and Co-infection, which will take place in São Paulo, Brazil, in November 2014.

This meeting promises again to become a unique high profile educational event with the contribution of key opinion leaders. We have set up a program for treating physicians to discuss the latest developments in the field of Hepatitis B and C treatment and the promising treatment possibilities of new antivirals that are becoming available. The conference presentations will focus on the translation of these new data and availability of new drugs into daily clinical practice. In addition, case discussions will be an important part of this conference, in order to stimulate discussions on local issues and stimulate interaction.

The target audience of this meeting consists of hepatologists, infectious disease doctors, gastro-enterologists and other healthcare professionals involved in daily care for Hepatitis-infected patients.

At the completion of this workshop the participant will:
- have an understanding of the basic concepts of Hepatitis B and C therapy
- be updates on the latest developments in the field of Hepatitis B and C antiviral research
- have an understanding of the challenges of Hepatitis B and C treatment in different patient populations
- have an overview of the advantages and possibilities of new antivirals in Hepatitis B and C therapy
- will know how to apply direct acting antivirals in clinical practice.

We invite you to attend the third Latin American Meeting on Treatment of Viral Hepatitis and
Co-infection and encourage you to submit abstracts on your research in this field.

We hope to see you in São Paulo for this exciting event !
