THE Daily Graphic: describes as positive reports that a least a firm in the country, mPharma, is working on educating the people on diseases, supporting them to understand the condition and raising awareness on the importance of accessing timely testing. The paper is of the view that it will be a further step if other stakeholders get involved to find the undiagnosed and link them for early treatment. According to the Graphic, if a strategy is reached, it will reduce annual deaths by 65 percent and increase treatment to 80 percent, saving 7.1 million lives globally by 2030. The Paper strongly suggests that the nation quickly roll it out, if it’s not doing that already, targeting testing programmes, particularly with a focus on pregnant women to prevent mother-to-child transmission of the chronic Hepatitis B Viral and children below the age of six who are vulnerable to developing chronic infection.

The Ghanaian Times: reminds Ghanaians of Hepatitis B lurking in the shadows amidst all the attention being given to the Covid-19 pandemic. It believes Hepatitis B or HBV may occasion more deaths per projections made by the Ghana Health Service and there is the need to accelerate efforts in curbing further risks in Health. The Paper calls for stakeholders to hasten efforts at introducing the birth dose vaccine for new born babies to protect them from HBV . It also calls for the allocations of resources to continually educate, screen and put people on effective treatment to reduce transmission . The Times says COVID19 has taught the country that it is more rational in strengthening the public health systems in a more serious consequential way.
