The International Liver Congress™ 2020 topic: A Healthy Liver for a Healthy You

At the International Liver Congress™ 2020, EASL is turning its attention to health in daily life and its importance in protecting the liver. Doctors, patients and patient groups, allied health professionals and policymakers will discuss the important new insights and information to help combat liver disease.

Attendees will hear the latest epidemiological and real-world data on the latest liver research.

ILC 2020 and 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 during the International Liver Congress™  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 the Congress is not disrupted.

In September 2019 EASL launched a policy statement on equality, diversity and inclusion.
