Iran has progressed significantly in control of liver diseases especially viral hepatitis during recent years. The burden of HBV has decreased to low endemicity and HCV is very low too now. The infections have been controlled through vaccination for HBV and case findings and blood safety for HCV infection. We have a network for education and research in Iran and we have many medical centers for giving the health services, the best one to them. The new drugs for therapy in HCV are very effective but very expensive now. Fortunately we have these drugs with low prices in Iran now. With the goal of increasing the access of patients in the world especially from Middle East Countries, I established this organization. We will present more information to the people in the region to getting the best services from Iran medical centers. The Hep Tourism Organization or Forum is a bridge between Iran and the patients in the region.
