World Hepatitis Day
World Hepatitis Day takes place every year on 28 July, with the aim of bringing the world together under one single theme, in order to raise awareness of viral hepatitis and the impact it has worldwide. Students of Meenakshi World School showcased universal health coverage of hepatitis through charts, posters, banners etc for bringing awareness as timely testing and treatment of hepatitis B and C can save lives.
Students understood that people may be infected with the hepatitis A due to the food and water contamination with fecal matter. Hepatitis B is most common problem caused in many regions of the world especially in the Asian and African countries. Vaccines are available for both hepatitis A and B.
It was a good exposure and awareness program for all students.
