african-sunsets-1358974Dear colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to the 1st Conference on Liver Disease in Africa, which will be held in the 3rd quarter of 2018 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Organized by Virology Education in close collaboration with local societies, COLDA 2018, aims at empowering local liver experts to prevent, treat and achieve cure for liver diseases to the benefit of patients in Africa. This being the 1st COLDA, we purpose to create a platform that provides a unique opportunity for clinicians, researchers, policy makers, industry and other healthcare professionals in the African region with support from the international community of experts to exchange knowledge on latest clinical developments and updates on ongoing and new trials in the field of hepatology tailored to the local needs.

We aim at providing you with a highly scientific and educative abstract- driven conference consisting of key note speeches, state-of-the-art lectures, oral and poster abstract presentations, roundtable discussion and debates and ample time for discussion.

We are certain that the conference will act as a catalyst for translating science into clinical practice while promoting medical education in the field of hepatology and setting up collaborations within the African region. Everyone will have an exceptional opportunity to share and acquire knowledge and experience in a wide spectrum of topics that are related to liver disease.

We look forward to welcoming you to COLDA 2018!
