From July 1, 2013 our Hepatitis C Network has been transformed into the Baltic Network against the life-treatening viral infections. The new expanded Network has received the support of the Swedish Institute for the period 2013-2016 in the amount of 3 000 000 SEK, project number 09272/2013. The new Network works on the burning issues of protection of the population of the Batlic region from viral hepatitis, HIV-1 and pandemic influenza. Project integrates 12 teams from Sweden, Russia, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Finland and Poland. Extended information about the network will be published later.

Due to the expansion of the Network, the webpage of the Hepatitis C Network has undergone a considerable reorganization but has preserved all the materials of the partental Hepatitis C Network, such as the content of the previous projects, information from the Network meetings, presentations of the lecture course on viral hepatitis, publication lists and photogallery.
