Tell Me About Award:

We are proud to focus this year ILCA Fellowship on supporting research with projects in Africa with a topic relevant for African patients.

ILCA is ramping up efforts to alleviate Africa’s need for medical assistance. Although the African continent is one of the regions with a very high disease burden, clinical and scientific resources for diagnosing, treating, and researching liver cancer are very limited in most parts of this continent. ILCA recognises this immense clinical and scientific need and plans to develop a strategy to engage African organisations and healthcare professionals in educational and training activities of ILCA.
