From WHO 2017 Hepatitis report, an estimated 290 million (89%) of the 325 million people living with viral hepatitis B and C are unaware that they are infected. As such, "Find the Missing Millions" Campaign was launched on Hepatitis Day 2019 to raise awareness and take action to influence real change. 

How are countries adapting to reach the goal of Hepatitis elimination by 2030? Let us hear from what Taiwan have to offer from their Micro-Elimination strategies in stepping up their efforts to overcome the barriers to Viral Hepatitis Testing.
