1. Project Activities Framework Hepatitis C Awareness Project

Hepatitis C is a major public health problem in India. There are limited studies on age and sex related prevalence of hepatitis C virus (HCV). As hepatitis C is a preventable disease, the burden of the disease could be reduced to a significant extent if its seroprevalence is better known in different age groups. Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is mostly transmitted through exposure to infective blood. This may happen through transfusions of HCV-contaminated blood and blood products, contaminated injections during medical procedures, and through injection drug use. Sexual transmission is also possible, but is much less common. The rural mass is unaware about the vaccine for HCV.Due to the lack of knowledge about the transmission of the HCV in the community and the front line worker the problem increasing day by day. This project will provide a better opportunity to work with community and the service provider to prevent the disease. UPVHA is already working on Tobacco Control, HIV/AIDS and have a good network of partner organizations to work on the Issue.
