NoHep in Med School

NoHep in Med School is all about raising awareness on viral hepatitis in the population general and among medical students in particular because of their increased vulnerability.

In partnership with the World Hepatitis Alliance, The Student Union of the Faculty of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, University of Yaounde I and YISS, a three-day event was carried out for testing, vaccination and counselling on Viral Hepatitis from the 25th to the 28th of July 2018. This was to celebrate World Hepatitis Day which is July 28th and also included month-long social media awareness and sensitization.

A study on the Knowledge, Attitudes and Practices of Medical Students towards Viral Hepatitis was also carried out.
