President’s statement

As the pandemic continues in many countries across the world, people who use drugs face more marginalisation and stigma than ever before. With many resources re-directed to COVID-19, there are also significant challenges in accessing testing and treatment for hepatitis C and other infectious diseases.

It is for this reason that we believe the 2021 INHSU Conference is one of the most important we will hold to date. 

After careful consideration and global consultation, we are delighted to announce that the 9th International Conference on Health and Hepatitis Care in Substance Users will take place in Australia, via a hybrid delivery model.

For those who can travel, we will be holding a face-to-face event in Sydney, Australia. For those who are unable to travel, we will be hosting conference sessions virtually,  available both live and on-demand.

We hope you will join us for another year of knowledge exchange to ultimately help improve the health of people who use drugs.

Jason Grebely, INHSU President
