Activity Description

This project aims to understand the knowledge as well as social impact of hepatitis B infection in rural Africa. We run surveys to understand hepatitis B knowledge among health care providers as well as patients. We also evaluate the clinical progression of hepatitis B (to liver cancer and cirrhosis) in these patients, as well as in those with hepatitis B and HIV co-infection. The project is performed in ALMC and Selian Hospital as well as dispensaries in the region.
