Public Awareness and Outreach Program
Overview

Pakistan is still struggling with the increasing burden of infectious diseases with each passing day. One of the major barriers in preventing these diseases is the lack of appropriate and ample information for the public. By advocating awareness among the general public, we can easily cleanse Pakistan of these infections.

Public Awareness and Outreach Program aims to impart quality knowledge to the target populations via, seminars, webinars, walks, social media, and door-to-door awareness campaigns. The purpose is to reach and engage youth for disseminating proper knowledge among the masses.

The components of this program include Safe Blood Donation Seminars, Hand Hygiene Awareness Drives in schools, Hepatitis Awareness Campaigns, and awareness about other infectious diseases like polio, rabies, malaria, dengue, COVID-19, TB, HIV, typhoid, and oral hygiene as well.
