Upcoming Event


It is our pleasure to invite you once again to Third Single Topic Conference (STC) of Asia Pacific Association for the Study of Liver Diseases hosted by Pakistan Society for the Study of Liver Diseases (PSSLD). The Conference will be held from 5 - 8 December 2019 at Serena Hotel in Islamabad. Last two APASL STCs were held in Karachi. This time Theme is “Elimination of Viral Hepatitis” From Dream to Reality.

PSSLD is working with a clear objective to create awareness among health care workers and to sensitize them to the burden of Liver diseases and its implications in the community. For this we hold regular scientific meetings across the country.

In this meeting we have included several interactive sessions with live audience response. Scientific program has CME credits and offers fantastic updates for consultants, trainees, and primary care physicians. Faculty will include international key opinion leaders mainly from the Asia Pacific region as well as from home.

All the committees are working very hard to make it a memorable event. It would be a great opportunity to meet and network with like-minded colleagues.

Looking forward to see you all.
