Event Details

Pakistan is still one of the unfortunate countries dealing with the high prevalence of viral Hepatitis B and C. To aid in tackling the burden of this disease, VFAHT in collaboration with the Hepatitis & Infection Control Program, Punjab, organized a Hepatitis B & C Screening and Vaccination Camp at FMH College of Medicine and Dentistry, Lahore on November 24, 2021. These camps are being held under the campaign of “Hepatitis Free Campuses”. A total of 178 students and staff members were screened against Hepatitis B and C, while 140 were vaccinated against Hepatitis B at the camp. For testing HBV and HCV Rapid Diagnostic Testing (RDT) kits were used. This activity also addressed the rampant myths about the disease and aimed to raise awareness about the gravity of hepatitis spread and preventive measures. The team showed full adherence to COVID-19 SOPs during the camp.
