Motivation of Novelty in NOhep Activities
NOhep as a global movement which follows the elimination of viral hepatitis by 2030 tries to unite those activities in the field of hepatitis around the world. According to NOhep’s request from individuals and organizations across the world to sign-up to be part of the next greatest achievement, the elimination of viral hepatitis, Iran Hepatitis Network did its best to pledge of support for this aim.
Therefore, as the important impact that creative and compassionate people have in raising public awareness about viral hepatitis, we should encourage them to be more active in this field. It is noteworthy that we have had six Tehran Hepatitis Conferences (THCs) in which many specialists (or scientists in different specialties) from Iran, the region and other parts of the world have taken part. Therefore, we would like to attract inventive people to participate actively in the plan of viral hepatitis elimination and appreciate their valuable efforts in the seventh THC. Hence, the “Novelty in NOhep Activity Prize” (NINA Prize) was elected to be presented to the top creative active people with novel experiences in the field of educating people or treating patients. This award belongs to those designing a new activity along with NOhep’s ideals. Therefore, activists and enthusiasts from all areas of the art and science are invited to participate in this competition. This prize was founded in 2017 by Prof. Seyed-Moayed Alavian, professor of gastroenterology and liver diseases and editor-in-chief of the Hepatitis Monthly Journal.
