For the readers who are not aware of Hepatitis B, here’s a brief description about this condition. Hepatitis B is a virus that mainly attacks the liver that can be transmitted through contact with blood and other body fluids from the infected person to the uninfected one. This type of illness can either be acute or long-term. However, this disease can be prevented through vaccination.
Everyone is invited to this educational forum and beneficial screening. This forum is absolutely free, however pre-registration is strongly encouraged. In the said forum, 200 Hepatitis B screening kits will be given out to childbearing age and pregnant women. So, make sure you are registered!
