Hepati­tis B in­jec­tion not avail­able

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - KHAL­IFA ARMAN

Hepati­tis B is an ex­ces­sive hazardous virus which vi­ciously on­slaughts liver and eats the liver like in­sects; it is known as silent killer be­cause when it at­tacks, it at­tacks silently and you will not feel that you have al­ready be­come vul­ner­a­ble to this deadly virus. When­ever it eats your liver up, you feel it, go to the doc­tor, un­dergo tests, ul­tra­sounds and in­ves­ti­ga­tions; but it is too late to fight the virus be­cause non-avail­abil­ity of in­jec­tion.

In ad­di­tion, due to this, thou­sands peo­ple lose their lives in Pak­istan. The poor peo­ple can not af­ford as the tablets are too ex­pen­sive and be­yond one’s ca­pac­ity and pur­chas­ing power. I re­quested the con­cerned or­ga­ni­za­tions and the drug con­trol au­thor­i­ties to en­sure the avail­abil­ity of the req­ui­site life sav­ing medicines and in­jec­tions at rea­son­able and af­ford­able prices so that the vic­tims of the di­vas­tat­ing virus could be saved. —Tur­bat, B alochis­tan
