Event Details

Pakistan still has a very high prevalence of viral Hepatitis B and C despite all the preventive and curative measures being taken. Keeping the same issue in mind, VFAHT in collaboration with the Hepatitis & Infection Control Program, Punjab, organized a Hepatitis B & C Screening and Vaccination Camp at Sheikh Zayed Medical College on November 06, 2021, under the campaign of “Hepatitis Free Campuses”. This camp targeted to screen and vaccinate the college students, hospital staff and faculty. A total of 348 students and staff members were screened against Hepatitis B and C using HBV and HCV Rapid Diagnostic Testing (RDT) kits. Hepatitis B vaccine was administered to 332 students and faculty. This activity also 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.
