The IHPBA-COVID Registry

The COVID-19 pandemic has already had a profound impact on HPB Surgery and our patients worldwide.  The IHPBA-COVID Registry has been developed for IHPBA, AHPBA, A-PHPBA and E-AHPBA members to capture global data on HPB surgical activity on COVID positive patients. The registry is an essential tool to help members gain a better understanding of the consequences of COVID-19 on our HPB surgical services and our patients.

The success of this international registry relies on your participation and we urge our members across the globe to contribute.  Please register your centre here and we will administer a password within 48 hours. 

The results of the data collection will be shown in a real-time dashboard which can accessed on the 'overview' page once you are logged in.  


There is also a public summary page which can be freely accessed here.

Any comments on the results can be raised on our Covid-19 discussion forum here.

If you have any questions on the registration process, please email
