MEP Friends of the Liver Interest Group:
Dr Cristian-Silviu Buşoi, the European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL) and EPHA invite MEPs, national experts, researchers, civil society organisations and all interested stakeholders to join the group to support and combat liver disease in the EU, which aims to:
Raise awareness about liver disease and its links to other chronic conditions such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes
Promote effective prevention measures on obesity and alcohol to reduce and prevent liver disease
Advocate for EU policies to ensure that all patients have access to the best treatments and medicines
Ensure that Horizon2020 provides funds for liver health research and related conditions
Subsequent meetings will look at the role of food and obesity in liver disease and its links with diabetes and heart disease and the need for an EU strategy on viral hepatitis (HCV) and access to medicines for HCV.
The seminar is free of charge. The organisers cannot cover any travel or accommodation costs.
