Hepatitis A to E – Josh Davis with some clear messages

Guest posting: A/Prof Josh Davis, Infectious Diseases Physician,  University of Newcastle and John Hunter Hospital 

Presented with his usual idiosyncratic style! Great for revision and to learn about the cutting edge of HBV management.

Challenging fallacies of Hepatitis B: (see second presentation)

  1. “HBV has been solved as a public health problem due to universal infant immunisation”
  2. “The treatments for HBV don’t work very well”
  3. “It is not viable to treat remote-dwelling Indigenous people for HBV”
  4. “HBV may be common but it doesn’t cause much morbidity or mortality”

Hepatitis C update to come!
