Raising awareness,
sharing experiences,
supporting those affected.

Liver diseases are only rarely discussed in the public sphere, and those affected and their families often lack active support. We want to change that! That is why we have founded Swiss HePa, the first Swiss Liver Patients’ Association. Our main objectives:

  • Building a network of patients and relatives and establishing a platform for doctors and specialist medical personnel
  • Establishing self-help groups and providing useful information in order to generate trust and encourage mutual support
  • Increasing acceptance within society in order to increase awareness among health insurers, authorities, companies, and other organisations and associations
  • Raising awareness of rare liver diseases among general practitioners
