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 E-AHPBA have a strong focus on the educational development of both trainees and specialists alike and works with partners to provide essential learning opportunities that will support professional development.
The primary mission of the Association is to be the prime interdisciplinary organisation 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. This mission is currently accomplished by conducting a biennial scientific meeting and other annual events such as consensus conferences, post-graduate courses, technical courses, webinars and workshops.
