A recent Gilani Research Foundation survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan indicated that 81 % of Pakistanis see Hepatitis B/ C as an important health problem. However, an alarming figure of 14 % said that the disease was somewhat important whereas 2 % said it is not at all important.
In a survey, a nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces were asked the following question: “In your view, how important is Hepatitis B/C as a health problem for Pakistan?” 81 % of the respondents were aware that it is very important as a health problem for Pakistan. 14 % replied that it is somewhat important and 2 % people state it is not at all important. 3 % gave no response. The fact that 19% of the population was ambivalent on the gravity of this disease suggests that there is still a lack of awareness about Hepatitis B/C.

    I intended to write you this little bit of remark in order to thank you once again for your personal awesome ideas you have shared at this time. This has been certainly shockingly generous of people like you in giving openly precisely what a number of people would've advertised as an e book in making some profit for themselves, especially now that you might have tried it if you ever decided. These strategies as well served as a good way to know that some people have similar zeal just like my very own to figure out way more in terms of this condition. I believe there are several more pleasant times up front for people who check out your site.
