Hepatitis continues to be a major public health issue facing Pakistan today!
Government, private sector, National and International NGOs and Civil society all have come together to contribute to the best of their capacities in the Hepatitis Elimination program
Province level prevalence surveys as well as development of Provincial level Hepatitis Elimination Action plans are being undertaken, with support of World Health Organization and other International donor agencies, across Pakistan.
Requisite funding and timely availability of logistics and supplies remains a major challenge facing the provincial governments
The Health foundation is running both its key intervention i.e. Hepatitis Free Community projects and the country wide “Adopt a Patient” campaign for attainment of its Awareness, Prevention and Treatment targets
