Despite affecting an estimated 2 billion people globally, Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) has received relatively little attention from policymakers, practitioners, and leaders in global health. Like many non-communicable diseases (NCDs) NAFLD requires comprehensive and coordinated responses that span across sectors and disciplines. Moving the discussion beyond the liver health community and health care sector will be crucial to shape and deliver the whole of society approaches needed to address this challenge.   

In recent years there has been greater traction with a range of organisations and individuals coming together to consider the various actions needed to address this challenge. In the past year over 200 experts have worked together to achieve consensus on how to advance the most pressing issues, from public awareness, treatment and care to public health policies and leadership.   

In collaboration with the EASL International Liver Foundation (EILF), Wilton Park is convening a dialogue to support the development of a NAFLD roadmap. The aim of the roadmap is to both guide and spur action on this largely neglected public health challenge. This dialogue builds upon a series of discussions hosted by Wilton Park and EILF in 2020 and will support ongoing efforts to establish a global coalition who can lead the NAFLD public heath agenda for the years to come.
