WORLD HEPATITIS DAY ELIMINATE HEPATITIS


The World Hepatitis Day is observed on 28 July every year to bring the world together under one single theme to bring awareness of the global burden of the deadly viral hepatitis and to influence real change.

At the 69th World Health Assembly held in Geneva, 194 governments adopted WHO’s Global Strategy on Viral Hepatitis, which includes a goal of eliminating hepatitis B and C in the next 13 years. The community responded by launching NOhep, the first ever global movement to eliminate viral hepatitis by 2030.

So this year TCV School Chauntra under the direction of the Department of Health (CTA) Central Tibetan Administration and our school’s Health Committee carried out the following activities to make this day a meaningful & educative and informative to everyone. As the children below class 8 were having their exams, the 9 and 10 students could only participate in them. The activities were Art and Essay competition and a short distance marathon. The junior students were also made aware of the day and its significance by putting up posters around the school corridors. They were access to the information from these display charts and the slogans.
