On September 01, 2023, a Hepatitis B & C screening camp was conducted by AMDC VFAHT in collaboration with IPAC, Thalassemia Society of Pakistan, Red Crescent Pakistan, and Welfare Society AMDC. The target population included the students and workers of AMDC and the purpose of the camp was to provide awareness and counselling to the individuals who were positive for both or either one of the diseases.

A safe blood donation drive was also conducted alongside the screening camp. Some snacks were also arranged to appreciate the efforts of the donors. The whole event proved to be a success for all the people involved.
