«Liver is life»: an underestimated organ
We want to raise awareness, share experiences and support those affected.

Liver diseases - whether acute or chronic, genetically determined, viral, autoimmune, frequent or rare - are insufficiently addressed in the public domain and those affected as well as their relatives often lack active support. "We aim to change this!"

Therefore, in 2017, we founded the first Swiss liver patients association - Swiss HePa – to raise awareness of the diversity of liver diseases. Through our online and offline activities, the annual Swiss HePa «Swiss Liver Day», patient education and personal counselling, we offer an exchange of experiences and support for those affected and their relatives. "Together we are strong."
