Viral hepatitis is a serious public health problem. At present six types of hepatitis viruses have been identified A, B, C, D, E & G viruses. Viral infections are mostly acute but in case of Hepatitis B, C & D can result in chronic infections.

Viral Hepatitis B and C prevalence is on a steady rise in Pakistan. Extrapolation of the figures gives us a staggering number of 1.0 million chronic carriers of Hepatitis B and 2.0 million chronic carriers of Hepatitis C in Sindh.

Alhamdulillah we have completed three years project (2011-2014) & achieved all the targets as per PC-1. By seeing the achievements/targets Honourable Chief Minister Sindh & Health Department agreed & extended this program for next three years (2014-2017).
