On behalf of the French chapter of the E-AHPBA, this is our privilege to welcome you to the City of Lyon, France, to participate to the 15th biennial Congress of the European-African Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association in 2023.
The biennial E-AHPBA Congress is a unique occasion that brings together eminent HPB experts and leaders. Since France has a long tradition of HPB Surgery and Liver Transplantation, and French HPB surgeons have actively participated and contributed in the E-AHPBA committees and congresses, we are very proud to host the 2023 E-AHPBA Congress in Lyon.

Jean Yves Mabrut
The EHPBA was founded in 1999 as the European Regional Association of the International Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association (IHPBA). The Association then expanded to countries of the Middle East and Africa, thus, forming the European-African Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Association (E-AHPBA) in 2011. Currently, the Association counts for more than 1000+ active members from Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The primary mission of the Association is to be the prime interdisciplinary organization for HPB-surgical science and scholarship in our region, and to provide an international forum for presenting the state-of-the-art developments and science of HPB-surgery.
