Abstract

The Viral Hepatitis Prevention Board jointly organized with the European Union for School and University Health and Medicine a meeting on the prevention and control of viral hepatitis through adolescent health programmes in Europe, held in Ljubljana, Slovenia, 15-16 March 2007. Participants from some 16 countries in Europe as well as the United States of America emphasized the importance of reaching adolescents mainly through school health programmes, provided an overview of currently existing youth health systems and reviewed their experiences with childhood and adolescent immunization programmes. The meeting concluded with a discussion of issues, lessons learnt, opportunities and action points for the future.
