TPAF organizes Asia’s biggest webinar on Paediatric Liver Transplant Conclave

The Pravin Agarwal Foundation organized Asia’s biggest paediatric liver transplant conclave – Affordable Liver Transplants Conclave (ALTC) 2020, on Tuesday, 6th October as a webinar, which was streamed live on YouTube. Every year, TPAF organizes an annual roundtable titled ‘Affordable Liver Transplants Conclave’ to initiate dialogue between various members of the liver transplant ecosystem. The theme for this year was Paediatric Liver Transplants and COVID-19.

The conclave featured doctors, knowledge experts and speakers from multiple countries who came together to share their perspective on paediatric liver transplants. It is the first time that a webinar at such a large scale was organized within the fraternity.

Since its inception in 2016, TPAF has strived to make paediatric liver transplants cost-effective and has partnered with various super-speciality hospitals in cities across India to facilitate surgeries at a low fixed cost. TPAF has also collaborated with other organizations to facilitate crowdfunding cumulatively. To date, the foundation has helped nearly 200 children get liver transplants done.

“This platform has emerged as a learning and knowledge sharing platform for all of us. I am so glad and humbled to see panelists and participants join us from across the globe to support this noble cause. It is the first time that we have organised a webinar and connected virtually to make this conclave a success,” commented Mr. Pravin Agarwal, Founder – The Pravin Agarwal Foundation, Chairman – Sterlite Power Transmission Limited and Vice Chairman – Sterlite Technologies Limited.

The conclave initiated four panel discussions among the top experts to discuss precautions to be taken and ways to improve outcomes of paediatric liver transplants during COVID-19 and included two international speakers who shared their perspective on future directions and the use of telemedicine and tele-education for liver transplants.

The live webinar saw over 500 registrations from different parts of the world and the YouTube video of the event had over 1000 views. Eminent people from other communities and humanitarian groups attended the webinar on zoom and YouTube making it a grand success. PR Newswire
