SOS HEPATITES BURKINA
Activity title : Awareness Caravan
Date: July 28
On July 28 of each year, the whole world celebrates World Hepatitis Day. This year's theme is “Hepatitis-free future,” with a strong focus on preventing hepatitis B among mothers and newborns.
It is within this context that that SOS Hepatitis Burkina in collaboration with the Pietro Anigoni Molecular Biology Research Center (CERBA / Labiogene) and the Association of medical students organized, throughout the month of July, a campaign focusing especially on awareness raising and advocacy, but also on screening for hepatitis B and C, and vaccination against hepatitis B.
On July 28 ، we’ve led an awareness-raising caravan across certain public areas (Town hall, Markets and bus stations) in the city of Ouagadougou.
