Core Tip It is known that outside the region of East Asia, sub-Saharan Africa has the highest incidence of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Within Africa the West African region remains the focus of significant disease activity. We reviewed the main issues responsible for this pattern. Although intervention efforts, such as primary prevention through hepatitis B vaccination, has led to reductions of chronic hepatitis B infection in some countries such as Gambia and Senegal, there remains a huge gap in secondary prevention, which are responsible for continuing high mortality to incidence ratio of HCC in West Africa. Collaborative clinical care and basic science translational research holds promise towards changing the current trend.
