An initiative of Tibet Charity Health Care Section, that was started on World Hepatitis B Day on 18th September 2015 concluded successfully after final dose of Hep B vaccination was injected to a school girl of Tibetan Children’s Village. With this 171 Tibetans in and around Dharamsala received full dose of Hep-B vaccinations thus giving them necessary protection from the dreaded disease for the rest of their lives.
It may be recalled that the Healthcare Section of Tibet Charity started an initiative on the occasion of World Hepatitis Day on 18th September 2015 to educate the public on Hepatitis B. Public awareness program focused on prevention and treatment of Hepatitis B. After testing 746 people, the home nurses took the responsibility to vaccinate those who were tested negative and wished to receive full vaccination against the disease. They were required to receive three doses of vaccination after regular intervals.
These 171 people who received these vaccinations included monks and nuns from monasteries and nunneries around here. There were also some Tibetans from Mcleodganj and school children.
We must not forget the kind support from Tibet Charity Denmark because of whom we are able to do all these commendable charitable works for the poor, sick, needy and old people in Dharamsala as well as outside it.
