The Canadian Liver Foundation’s (CLF) mission is to bring liver research to life for all Canadian through research, advocacy, education and patient support efforts. CLF invests in life-saving research. To attract new talent, help researchers get established and support new advances and breakthroughs, they fund the research of both senior and emerging investigators, as well as medical students. They assist people coping with liver disease online, in person, via their National Help Line and through their Peer Support Network. CLF answers questions after diagnosis, helps people understand their disease, and provides the resources they need. They help Canadians protect their liver health and prevent liver disease by teaching them about the liver’s vital functions and how to make liver-healthy lifestyle decisions. They encourage early diagnosis and treatment by working with the medical community and offering tools and resources on screening and patient care. They strive to improve prevention and the quality of life of those living with liver disease by advocating for better screening, access to treatment, and patient care. CLF does this by working with federal, provincial and municipal governments, community organizations, health care providers and individuals to raise awareness of liver-related health issues and push for policy changes.
