New NASH Policy Report Released on International NASH Day

Today, International NASH Day 2019, a new policy report on non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) was launched by The Health Policy Partnership (HPP) in collaboration with a steering committee consisting of Ms. Donna R. Cryer, President & CEO of Global Liver Institute, Professor Quentin M. Anstee, Dr. Farhana Bin Lootah, Dr. Hannes Hagström, Dr. Jeffrey V. Lazarus, Professor Michael P. Manns, Professor Manuel Romero-Gómez, Professor Lawrence Serfaty and Professor Zobair M. Younossi.

The report aims to prompt a measured policy response to the anticipated rise of NASH in years to come. Focused on Europe and the Middle East, it offers up-to-date estimates of the epidemiology and impact of NASH, and highlights key strategic issues to improve clinical management and health system preparedness from a policy perspective. The report proposes five key recommendations for action for policymakers. The report has been initiated and funded by Gilead Sciences Europe. Gilead has had no input into the report content.
