VGM Hospital conducted a hepatitis awareness procession at Singanallur, Coimbatore. The Chairman of VGM Hospital Dr. V.G. Mohan Prasad presided over the event.
From the recent survey made in Coimbatore, it is found that over 8 percent of people are affected by Hepatitis B and C.
Specifically, in the Annur region there is a high prevalence of hepatitis C. Previously, various medical camps were held and free treatment was given for the patients by VGM hospital. Following that VGM Hospital is about to launch another campaign on August 11th and aims to eliminate this chronic hepatitis C from the face of Annur through an intensive door to door survey.
