March 2017 - The first meeting of the WHO Strategic and Technical Advisory Committee on HIV and Viral Hepatitis (STAC HIV-HEP) was held from 13-15 March 2017 in Geneva, Switzerland. The Committee consists of the leading experts invited by the WHO Director-General to provide state-of-the-art scientific, strategic and technical advice.

This was the first meeting of the STAC HIV-HEP, formed by merging 2 previously separate STACs for each disease area – a milestone event in the further integration and evolution of these programmes within WHO.
