Course Objectives

Understand the issues and challenges of AMS in LMICs, to enable participants to better adapt the concepts learned in the other modules to these specific contexts, based on the example of several specific initiatives and solutions. The module will cover three themes: the context (Epidemiology of AMR and Antimicrobial prescription in LMICs); the implementation of AMS programs in LMICs; and the perspectives (researches, innovations, and training programs). This is aimed either at participants wishing to practice directly in these fields, or at those working on global health issues.

Getting to hepatitis B cure: Is it possible?

Course Objective

Chronic HBV infection is a global public health burden estimated to impact nearly 300 million persons worldwide. Although effective vaccines are available to prevent new HBV infection, treatment of existing chronic hepatitis B (CHB) is limited, as the current standardof-care antiviral drugs can only suppress viral replication without achieving cure. 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.
