INTEGRATED LIVER CARE (ILC) FOUNDATION
The Integrated Liver Care (ILC) foundation was formed in 2012 to help advance the cause of liver studies and research in India, as well provide a means of providing financial assistance to economically deprived patients, especially children, who were in need of transplantation. Over the past three years, the foundation has taken major steps to increase the awareness and education of physicians and the general public on transplantation. Members of the foundation have given talks on liver care and organ donation awareness in more than 20 medical colleges. The foundation has conducted three consecutive annual conferences focused on Liver sciences and transplantation called Frontiers in Liver diseases, as well as numerous Continuing Medical Education Programs in partnership with local and national IMA groups. Additionally the ILC foundation has conducted two national policy meetings to bring together experts in the field of organ transplantation to come out with common solutions that are specific to India’s needs.
