Government has announced plans to conduct media workshops aimed at sensitising people on the dangers of hepatitis related diseases which have become a pandemic in the country.
Ministry of Health Spokesperson Tasila Pitters said the ministry is working with different media houses in order to educate people on the importance of getting tested for the disease.
Dr. Pitters disclosed that the ministry will embark on organising media sensitisation workshops in order to engage the masses on effects of the hepatitis disease.
She was speaking in an interview with ZANIS in Lusaka yesterday.
Dr Pitters revealed that the ministry of health is working hard to ensure that it provides the necessary instruments needed in all health centres to conduct the hepatitis tests.
She added that hepatitis is threatening lives in Zambia hence the need for the patients to go for an early hepatitis test in an effort to preserve and save lives.
