Chronic HBV infection is a global public health burden estimated to impact nearly 300 million persons worldwide.

This course aims to update participants concerning different therapeutic strategies and current technologies for HBV cure. The course will also cover management of hepatitis D and effect of COVID-19 on management of HBV-infection. In order to
stimulate scientific communication and collaboration between the speakers and the audience, two roundtables have also been included in the program.
