The activities here in Manila will be done in tandem with activities in Cebu and Davao. I haven't been able to find any online articles that detail the activities in those 2 cities, but information about World Hepatitis Day should be available in their major hospitals. Below is an an excerpt from one of the articles above.
"Starting at 8 a.m., there will be free hepatitis screenings and a free clinic for patients with liver diseases at Medical Center Manila (MCM). At 1 p.m., 1,000 balloons for a cause will be released at the lobby entrance of MCM to commemorate the event and to show to the whole community that the HSP is one with the world in marking World Hepatitis Day. The rest of the afternoon will be for education dissemination through interactive forums on various diseases affecting the liver like hepatitis B and C, alcohol liver disease, fatty liver, cirrhosis, and liver cancer."
I hope that many people from this forum will attend tomorrow's event. It sounds like it will address many of the questions that are usually posted on the board.
