Hepatitis-free future achievable – First Lady

First Lady Rebecca Akufo-Addo has reminded every Ghanaian to get tested and seek treatment if diagnosed with Hepatitis.

Mrs Akufo-Addo gave the reminder when Ghana joined the rest of the world to mark Hepatitis Day yesterday, Wednesday, 28 July 2021.

The theme of “HEPATITIS CAN’T WAIT” according to Mrs Akufo-Addo is a clarion call to action adding that “every 30 seconds, someone dies from Hepatitis related conditions.”

She noted that a hepatitis-free future is achievable with a united effort.

She, therefore, called on all health units and agencies to work together to eliminate viral hepatitis as a public health threat by 2030 as set by World Health Organization.
