The Aim

To create awareness regarding :
– Ways a person can contract Hepatitis B
– Safe blood practices
– Avoidance of injectable drug use
– Avoidance of unsafe sexual exposure
– Prevention of Mother to child transmission


There are multiple ways in which a person can unknowingly be exposed to Hepatitis B. The most important reason to be alert is because this virus has a high transmission rate and is a major cause of liver cancer. A lot many of our relatives are admitted to hospitals and receive blood transfusion. Teenagers in our city are losing their virginity at early ages and are not aware of safe sexual practices. In the midst of all these risk factors,the mortality due to Hepatitis B is increasing. We support the WHO in their initiative to create awareness and educate the public about it and reduce the deaths caused by this virus.
