INHSU to Host Hepatitis C Intervention Workshop at Lisbon Addictions 2024 Conference

INHSU is pleased to announce it will be hosting a Hepatitis C Intervention Workshop on October 22, 2024, as a side event to the 2024 Lisbon Addictions conference in Portugal. 

The half-day workshop will focus on the practical implementation of evidence-based hepatitis C interventions such as point-of-care testing, dried blood spot testing, peer support, patient navigation, and case finding. You do not need to be a Lisbon Addictions delegate to attend. 

The workshop will be co-hosted with The European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA) and is intended for anyone interested in implementing or scaling up hepatitis C interventions in their service setting, including healthcare providers, community members and policymakers from a variety of settings, e.g. primary care, drug and alcohol services, corrections, outreach, homelessness, mental health, needle and syringe services and health departments.

Attendees can expect to gain insights into best practices, models of care, and key research findings while also exploring the challenges and learnings associated with implementing these interventions in diverse service settings.

The workshop will showcase good practice interventions and models of care, highlighting key research, challenges and learnings in a collaborative coaching environment, with the aim of supporting participants to develop or enhance their own models of hepatitis C care.

In addition, the EMCDDA ‘Increase access to hepatitis C testing and care in drug services toolkit’ will be presented.

After attending this event, you will be able to:

  • Identify areas for enhancing or scaling up your HCV service delivery
  • Understand how a variety of interventions work
  • Identify suitable interventions for your service
  • Describe how the intervention could be implemented in your service setting
  • Analyse possible barriers to implementing interventions and how to overcome them


The workshop will begin at 1:00pm, with registration and lunch from 12:00pm. The workshop will end at 5:00pm.
