Hepatitis-B is reported with high incidence in Pakistan because of lack of awareness, causing morbidity and mortality among patients. This disease can be prevented through vaccination. Unfortunately, a large number of people cannot afford vaccination due to its cost.
In order to help those needy people, IMI Pakistan's Karachi Chapter organized free vaccination camps at different areas. Like previous year, IMI Karachi teams, under the supervision of Dr. Hani and with support of other paramedical staff, set up a number of camps in different areas including Muhabat Nagar, Incholi, Jogi Mor Malir, Ammar-e-Yasir Society, Ayoub Goth, Paradise Medical & Emergency Centre and Gulshan-e-Hadeed. 1800 people throughout Karachi were vaccinated during these camps.
