It is only apt that this facility dedicated to curing acute liver failure patients was inaugurated and dedicated to the public utility coinciding with World Liver Day celebrated on April 18th. KMCH had organised a function with the aim of spreading the awareness among the public as how to prevent, diagnose and rush for early treatment for acute liver failure.
