Romanian Association for Liver Diseases

Our mission over the next decade will be to improve the care of our patients suffering of liver disease, in all its aspects.

President's foreword

Dear colleagues and partners,

It is my distinct honor to address the welcome message on behalf of the co-founders of the Romanian Association for Liver Diseases (RoALD).

Six years ago, we put great efforts into launching Update on Hepatology Course as a major educational event in the field of hepatology in Romania. Over the coming years, a highly dynamic professional society has emerged around this growing event, composed of extremely dedicated and talented individuals with valuable contributions in the field.

In 2018, a small group of liver specialists decided to bring together those who can contribute to the field in a structured medical community of health care professionals and scientists acting to prevent and cure liver disease. We are all working hard to ensure that our society will soon become a large forum for specialists in liver diseases.

Our aim has remained to deliver updated knowledge, to share opinions, initiatives and clinical experience, to build collaborative projects and to stimulate the implementation of an evidence-based approach, in order to ultimately improve the care and outcome of many people who suffer from liver diseases in Romania.

I am extremely proud to be a member and founder of an organization aiming to articulate and uphold the values of hepatology in Romania and I encourage you to become a member of RoALD, to play a critical role in its development and organization, to participate in the election of the Governing Board and to help build a strategic plan in hepatology that will be implemented over the next years.
