Who we are

The Swiss Hepatitis association maintains a competence network on viral Hepatitis with a focus on public health. The non-profit organisation comments on issues in the field of viral Hepatitis and carries out its own projects. Its Board members represent the various subject areas and academic disciplines concerning themselves with or being affected by viral Hepatitis. Since 2017 Swiss Hepatitis replaces the organisation Swiss Experts in Viral Hepatitis (SEVHep) and continues its activities.
