ABOUT US

In 1995 the Liver Research Foundation was established to support research into the cause and prevention of liver diseases like hepatitis B and C, autoimmune liver disease, new surgical techniques for transplantation and ways to decrease organ rejection. The foundation has come a long way since then and intends to help promote further research, provide education about liver wellness and work to find cures and better treatment for all kinds of liver ailments. The Liver Foundation of W.A. is committed to spreading awareness about preventable liver/hepatic diseases, finding a cure for advanced or chronic cases, promoting and campaigning for organ donation. By encouraging individuals to participate and be alert about their own health care, the Liver Foundation of W.A. believes it can make lasting changes in the lives of people.
