ILPF is a nonprofit, charitable organization by the like-minded peoples that include -liver disease patients; health care providers, policy makers and volunteers who want to support the cause of liver disease. We think- Experienced patient is half doctor. By going through the agony of illness, they know the real life facts and they faced the difficulties by own. Patient forms a bridge between the experts/doctor in one side and his/her fellow patients at the other side. He/she is torch bearer to many of his colleagues who are unable to get the timely advise, referral or care or proper follow up. ILPF emerged from a desire amongst Indian liver patient groups to share their experiences because they proudly say –
I suffered, I care and now it is you.
