Our Mission

    In compliance with the constitution, laws, regulations, national policies and social morality, CLH is engaged in liver health promotion for the whole society, especially targeting at young people, children, the elderly and vulnerable groups, so as to make contributions to the improvement of prevention and control for liver diseases.

    In recent decades, China has made great achievements in public health sector. However, various types of liver diseases are still a serious threat to the health of general public, including infectious diseases caused by viruses like hepatitis B and hepatitis C and also chronic diseases associated with unhealthy lifestyles like fatty liver and alcoholic liver disease. Liver diseases not only bring about huge social burden and impoverish a number of patients, but also make many patients suffer from psychological problems due to social discrimination against them.

    The prevention and control of liver diseases needs efforts from the social system. In addition to scientific immunization and standard treatment in the medical sector, it is necessary to develop health education and popularize knowledge of liver health for the pubic and provide public aid for the elderly, young, poor, sick and infected people.

    As the only social service institution in liver health nationwide, CLH aims to build a platform for the cooperation among relevant experts, volunteers and institutions to raise public’s awareness of liver health, promote prevention and standard diagnosis and treatment for liver diseases, reduce the burden of disease and eliminate social discrimination against patients with hepatitis.
