How to prevent Hepatitis B- an awareness program

Hepatitis B is a viral infection that attacks the liver and can cause both acute and chronic diseases. The virus is most commonly transmitted from mother to child during birth and delivery, as well as through contact with blood or other body fluids.

A serious liver infection caused by the hepatitis B virus that’s easily preventable by a vaccine. This disease is most commonly spread by exposure to infected bodily fluids. Symptoms are variable and include yellowing of the eyes, abdominal pain, and dark urine. Some people, particularly children, don’t experience any symptoms. In chronic cases, liver failure, cancer or scarring can occur. The condition often clears up on its own. Chronic cases require medication and possibly a liver transplant.

Our NSS volunteers created awareness about Hepatitis B for YRC volunteers and other students.
