The goal of the Friends of the Liver Group (FotL) is to work with Members of the European Parliament to raise aware of liver disease in the Parliament and to advocate for EU level policies to prevent and treat them.
In 2013, EASL established the Friends of the Liver group (FotL) in the European Parliament. Following the retirement of its first Chair, Stephen Hughes, MEP, it is now chaired by Dr Christian Busoi (EPP, Romania).
On 27 May 2015, EASL held an event in the European Parliament to re-launch the MEP Friends of the Liver Interest Group. Future meetings will take place on a regular basis.
