Dr Paul Gow is a Liver Specialist at the Austin Hospital and the Chair of Hepatitis Victoria's Liver Health Advisory Committee, a group looking at expanding the work the organisation does beyond viral hepatitis. One in three Australians have fatty liver disease, he says, a looming health crisis for the country. Meanwhile, there are a long list of other liver-related diseases for which there is little knowledge or practical support for the general public. "The changes we have seen in the last 20 years are miraculous... this means there is space for Hepatitis Victoria to broaden its remit and potentially offer services to people with other liver problems".
