United Against Hepatitis: Network for a Hepatitis-Free Society

Since 2010, United Way Mumbai has addressed the challenge of the increasing prevalence of hepatitis B and C infections. As a part of our Community Impact Initiative, we target high-risk populations such as female sex workers, drug addicts and migrants, as well as the general population. The strategy adopted includes medical interventions among the high-risk groups for controlling the infections, (with testing, medical referral, follow up and support for treatment compliance, patient support activities, etc.). Additionally, we provide health education to the masses to generate awareness and prevent the spread of infections.
