This is to draw the attention of concerned health authorities of Balochistan to the spread of Hepatitis B and C in rural areas of Balochistan. The lack of treatment facilitates and the lack of access to hospitals have further aggravated the situation. It is unfortunate that the province’s healthcare sector is not up to the mark. If urgent measures are not taken by the government, this life threatening disease will take many precious lives in the province.
Awareness seminars should be held to give awareness to the people about this fatal disease. Symptoms of this disease are hard to detect. Symptoms like joint pain and fatigue are often dismissed by doctors as well. These awareness programmes can encourage people to go for a complete medical examination regularly. They can also guide people how to better take care of themselves if they have contract the virus.
