Changing prevention from people to providers
Hepatitis C virus awareness
programs in Egypt
Public health hepatitis C virus awareness programs are not working.
This is because these awareness programs are directed at the general public
when instead awareness should be directed to all health care providers.
HCV is spread by blood. The most likely place a person in the
community, especially in Egypt will be exposed to blood is from medical or
dental care providers. Primary prevention of HCV requires that doctors and
dentist and their assistants and their clinics have to be clean and free of
blood. All instruments and needles and syringes
have to be sterile. This is the problem because the providers are not
taking care to make sure that the patients are not being exposed to blood from
other patients which may have the HCV virus.
We need your support. No contribution is too small.
We are a 501 c(3) non-profit tax execpt organizatioin.
