PSSLD was founded in 2006 by a small group of dedicated professionals, namely Prof, Wasim Jafri, Prof, Saeed Hamid, Prof, Masood Siddiq, and Prof, Zaigham Abbas. From a humble beginning it has grown rapidly to become the most active hepatology society of the country.

PSSLD makes a measurable difference in the fight against liver disease by providing and academic forum for learning and knowledge sharing by dedicated gastroenterologists and hepatologists and opportunities for continuing medical education for allied medical professionals. Training future specialists is important, and despite financial constraints we sponsor selected gastroenterology trainees for attend conferences and afford limited budgets for research. For the community, patients, and their families, PSSLD works by public awareness campaigns about liver wellness and disease prevention.
