Community Projects Promise Elimination Of Hepatitis
Ferozsons Laboratories Limited is committed to the cause of hepatitis elimination with experience spanning a decade in providing world class treatments in Hepatology provided to thousands of patients across Pakistan.
A new project that works with and in the communities is leading to new partnerships that promise appropriate screening, prevention and treatment of Hepatitis C patients.
The community based projects, a pilot of which is being run at two locations in Central Punjab with some of the leading NGO's and community clinics engaged in liver care, is not only screening patients but is also looking at educating communities regarding the disease and ways to prevent it.
The screening campaign has reached out to over 1,000 people in the communities to date and is scheduled to continue whilst workshops are designed for awareness for school teachers and general public.
All these efforts will play a key role in addressing the burden of Hepatitis C in the communities. More projects on the same lines are being initiated in other parts of the country as well with an aim to cover a large population at risk of Hepatitis C.
