To aid in tackling the burden of viral hepatitis, IPAC Foundation & VFAHT in collaboration with Shifa4U, Rawalian Community Awareness Program, CLD, and Martin Dow, organized a Hepatitis B & C Screening Camp at the Old Teaching Block, Rawalpindi Medical University, on May 28, 2022. These camps are being held under the “Hepatitis Free Zone” and will be executed in 6 phases with the aim of covering every student, faculty member, and staff member working at Rawalpindi Medical University and their family members living on the premises. The team showed full adherence to COVID-19 SOPs during the camp.
