EASL’s principles and values

EASL is committed to furthering research in the field of hepatology to improve the lives of everyone affected by liver disease. The combined efforts of all stakeholders in the public and private sectors and civil society are essential to halting and reversing liver disease. As such, EASL acknowledges that every voice is valued.

EASL embraces freedom of expression at The Digital International Liver Congress™ 2020, as an essential principle in the response to progressing liver disease and in promoting full participation during the congress. However, EASL is responsible for maintaining the safety of all attendees and as such, must balance the need of allowing all participants to be heard while ensuring events are not disrupted.

Please consult the EASL policy statement on equality, diversity, and inclusion.
