About the Project
The implementation in Romania of integrated screening projects in viral hepatitis meant to improve patients' access to medical services is a national priority, being in full agreement with the provisions of the national strategy on social inclusion and poverty reduction 2015-2020.
The general objective of the project is to optimize patients' access to quality medical services by improving the level of medical training of specialists working in public healthcare facilities or under contract with CNAS in order to further the disease detection, transmission for staging and treatment in patients with chronic liver disease caused by hepatitis B / D / C viruses, from all development regions of Romania.
"We cannot have a developed, modern, European country full of sick people. We cannot be healthy without being competitive on the world health market with Romanian medical products and services. We cannot be competitive without well-educated and highly trained medical staff, high-performance specialists who are passionate about the field they chose."
Carried out as part of the Livero project, an information and awareness campaign focused on the dangers of viral hepatitis will be carried out at national level. The campaign will start in early 2021 in outdoor, online and media formats.

About Hepatitis B
Hepatitis B is a disease caused by a highly transmissible DNA virus. The hepatitis B virus (HBV) is one of the most widespread hepatitis viruses worldwide, and in Romania it is estimated that up to one in 20 people is infected.
About Hepatitis C
Hepatitis C is a disease caused by a virus discovered in 1989. Due to the late discovery of the disease, it went undetected and spread for a long time, including through blood transfusions. In Romania it is estimated that 3% of the population is infected with the hepatitis C virus.
About Hepatitis D
Hepatitis D is a disease caused by a virus that can only multiply in the presence of the hepatitis B virus. Thus, hepatitis D can only occur as a coinfection with the B virus and a person vaccinated against the B virus is also immune to the hepatitis D virus.
