Mission

Objectives

Expand knowledge of the epidemiology, etiology, pathobiology and prognosis of liver, biliary tract and pancreatic cancers through:

Background

In 2020, the Africa HepatoPancreatoBiliary Cancer Consortium (AHPBCC) was organized to harness resources and expertise across the African Continent, the United States, and Europe to investigate the influences of lifestyle, environment, viral and host biological factors on the development of HPB cancers. Today the Consortium has more than 200 clinicians and research investigators who inform new strategies for risk prevention, early detection, and improved survival of patients with these cancers.

To expand the overall knowledge of HPB cancers, the Consortium members present an Annual Conference. This forum provides a framework for discussion, development, and pursuit of new research directions, fosters collaborations among the academic, medical, and scientific communities, and supports the development of early career physicians and clinicians.

The Africa Institute for Liver and Digestive Diseases (AILDD) functions as the administrative arm for the AHPBCC. In this role, AILDD oversees and manages the administrative aspects and coordination efforts of the Consortium.”

The Foundation has secured a 3-year grant from the US National Institutes of Health to support the 2022, 2023 and 2024 AHPBCC Conference activities.
