This chapter presents African region findings from the World Hepatitis Alliance’s 2014 civil society survey in three sections.

• GAMMUN Centre for Care and Development Nigeria • LiveWell Initiative

The first section provides an overview of respondents. The second section describes the extent to which respondents agreed or disagreed with what their governments reported about hepatitis policies and programmes for the 2013 World Health Organization (WHO) Global Policy Report on the Prevention and Control of Viral Hepatitis in WHO Member States. It also notes the issues associated with the greatest amount of agreement and disagreement. The third section highlights some of the qualitative findings from respondents based in countries where governments did not submit information for the 2013 WHO global policy report.

African Region continued 4.1. Respondents Eighteen organisations from nine countries in the African region responded to the World Hepatitis Alliance’s 2014 civil society survey. The governments of three of those countries provided information for the 2013 WHO global policy report, and thus the seven respondents based in those countries were able to comment on the accuracy of their governments’ responses. The governments of the other six countries did not provide information for the 2013 report; the eleven respondents based in those countries instead commented on their governments’ responses to viral hepatitis by writing short statements about key issues. Additional information about respondents is presented in Table 4.1. on previous page. Figure 4.1. Types of organisations submitting survey responses, African region (N=18) Figure 4.1
