The Facts 

         

         Approximately half a billion individuals around the                  world are living with a liver disease

         Viral hepatitis, a silent epidemic, claims 1.4 million lives            annually - making it comparable to HIV, tuberculosis,                and malaria. 

         Many chronic liver related diseases including                          hepatitis, obesity, fatty liver, diabetes, high cholesterol,            and drug & alcohol abuse are preventable

LHI's Strategy 

Preventing disease, promoting screenings, and                 improving patient adherence to treatment regimen

depends on an understanding of the importance

of the liver.

Liver health education is the critical rationale, for                 motivating  individuals to adopt healthy lifestyles, and

avoid risk behaviors.

LHI works to promote liver health education by

creating educational materials, collaborating with organizations, and influencing health policy.
