The OPTN/UNOS Liver and Intestinal Organ Transplantation Committee requests feedback from the transplant community, other stakeholders and the public regarding next steps to consider as it increases equity in access to liver transplantation.

The committee prepared a concept document summarizing challenges in fair access to liver transplants posed by geographic disparity, concepts under current consideration, and alternative approaches investigated.

A national public forum is planned for September 2014 in Chicago. Participants will discuss feedback recently received from a questionnaire, seek additional input from interested stakeholders, and recommend ways to address current inequities in access to liver transplantation.
