Viral hepatitis campaign

 

257

million

people are estimated to be living with Hepatitis B virus. 

 

6.1%

of people in Sub-Saharan Africa are infected with hepatitis B despite the introduction of universal hepatitis B vaccination and effective antiviral therapy.

 

96%

of all deaths from Hepatitis were caused by Hepatitis B and C virus.

We at DoctorsAct believe that new cases of Hepatitis B can be prevented and deaths or unwanted complications from Hepatitis C can prevented if detected and treated in time. With our viral hepatitis program, we hope to contribute to WHO's target of reducing new infections by 90% and mortality by 65% by 2030.

How are we doing it?

Mass screening exercises for groups, institutions, churches, community peer groups, schools etc.

Vaccination for all who test negative for Hepatitis B and have never vaccinated against it.

Confirmatory tests for Hepatitis B and C if positive and treatment.

Partner with us or donate to scale up our viral hepatitis program.

You can contact the program coordinators to book your schedule your date or request for more information.
