Gender equality in liver health – still a long way to go

March 8, 2023 - March 8, 2023

International Women’s Day is an opportunity to celebrate hard-won progress for women and girls. It is also a stark reminder of the remaining challenges.  Women don’t have equal opportunity, representation, and quality of life – nor do they have equality in health care. Globally more than 5 million women, children and adolescents die from preventable health conditions every year.

There is still gender disparity in liver treatment. Fewer women are able to access liver transplants than men. They are 4 times more likely to have autoimmune hepatitis, and in older people, women are more likely to have fatty liver disease than men.

LiverWELL supports all women to embrace their liver health, raise awareness, and take steps in keeping their livers healthy
