Lebanon’s Health Ministry organized a campaign with the aim of raising awareness about the spread, symptoms and consequences of hepatitis, Zawya reported. The ministry’s project was launched in collaboration with the Doctors’ Syndicate, the Lebanese Association for Gastroenterology, the Lebanese Association for Infectious Diseases and Microbiology, and the private firm Roche Lebanon. The launch was announced in a news conference at the Hilton Habtoor Grand Hotel sponsored by Health Minister Wael Abu Faour, the head of Parliament’s Health Committee Atef Majdalani and the head of the Doctors’ Syndicate Antoine Boustani. The campaign targets two types of hepatitis, B and C, and aims to inform citizens that when symptoms are neglected, these viral infections can lead to more dangerous chronic liver diseases. Hepatitis B and C infections are most commonly transmitted through blood and other bodily fluids.
