COLDA 2021

Organized by the SHARE Global Health Foundation in close collaboration with regional societies, the Conference on Liver Disease in Africa 2021 aims at empowering healthcare professionals (HCPs) to diagnose, prevent, treat and achieve a cure for liver diseases for the benefit of patients in Africa. This being the 4th COLDA, it continues to cultivate a platform that provides a unique opportunity for clinicians, researchers, policymakers, industry representatives, and other healthcare professionals in the African region. Together with support from an international community of experts, they will exchange knowledge on the latest developments and achievements in the management of viral hepatitis and liver disease with a special focus on the African context.

During the plenary session on 9 September 14:35–15:34 CEST, titled Hepatitis Care After COVID-19, Sonjelle Shilton, Hepatitis Lead at FIND, will present on “Diagnostics / Prevention During COVID-19.”
