Ferozsons and Jang Group collaborate for a noble cause
This year Ferozsons Laboratories Limited in collaboration with the Jang Group organized a seminar to celebrate The World Hepatitis Day which is observed on July 28 to promote awareness of the disease that can sensitize the world leaders, doctors and researchers to strive to thwart it across the board from permeation. Leading Gastroenterologists and Hepatoglists including Prof. Anwaar A. Khan, Prof. Ghias un Nabi Tayyab, Prof. Irshad Hussain were present to name a few. CEO of Ferozsons, Osman Khalid Waheed also spoke on the importance linking the undiagnosed patients to cure.
In Pakistan, 15 million people are living with Hepatitis B and C unaware. Hepatitis can stay silent in the body for many years before symptoms begin to appear, but if untreated can lead to liver cirrhosis and cancer. Testing is easy, and treatment is now increasingly affordable and in the case of Hepatitis C, highly effective with 95% cure rates and low side effects. Without finding the undiagnosed and linking them to care, millions will continue to suffer, and lives will be lost. Today, on World Hepatitis Day, we call on people to take action, raise awareness and join in the quest to find the missing millions.
