Hepatitis is a disease that affects the liver caused by the Hep virus,leading to further complications such as liver cancer as well as dead. In sub-Saharan Africa,the prevalence is high and Cameroon is considered by W.H.O as one of the most affected countries.
Statistics from the 2011 Demographic Health Survey (DHS)in Cameroon shows a national prevalence of 11.9% that is about 2million people infected with Hepatitis B virus and 1.03% that is about 200000poeple infected with Hepatitis C virus.
despite the wide spread of the disease people still are not aware of the disease condition and how harmful it can be to our communities.with respect to this ,fund is needed to facilitate the creation of awareness through the organization of seminars on Hepatitis B and C and also to get test strips of Hepatitis B and C for free testing as most health care facilities do charge much in other to conduct the test. Thus making it difficult for individuals to know their status most especially the children and youths(particularly those living in the suburbs).
