The establishment of an appropriate framework for the implementation of scientific advances in hepatology into clinical practice represents a major goal pursued by the EILF. In response to this objective, the Foundation organized a first Middle East Forum in Paris in September 2016 entitled ‘Revisiting Unmet Needs in the Diagnosis and Management of Hepatitis C Virus in the Middle East and North Africa Region’.

The Forum, which was attended by nineteen key opinion leaders representing eight countries from the Middle East, provided the first dedicated platform bringing together experts from the Middle East and EASL. The output of the meeting highlighted a number of key areas for potential collaboration including:

  • The review of clinical practice guidelines;
  • The establishment of a series of educational courses featuring state of the art lectures and clinical case discussions delivered by Senior EASL Key Opinion leaders and rising stars; and
  • The development of a liver transplantation exchange program taking place at Europe’s leading centers
