10. Africa Initiatives

The African continent is one of the regions with a very high disease burden. In contrast, clinical and scientific resources for diagnosis, treatment and research of liver cancer are very limited in most parts of this continent. ILCA recognizes this huge clinical and scientific need and would like to develop activities with a focus on Africa.
