Experts gather in Brazil to fight hepatitis

A summit is under way in Brazil that's aiming to eliminate viral hepatitis.

The disease kills more than 1.3 million people worldwide every year - that's more than all other chronic illnesses combined, including HIV, malaria and tuberculosis.

Experts are sharing their own national experiences in combatting hepatitis, hoping to come up with global solutions.

Al Jazeera's Daniel Schweimler reports from Buenos Aires.
