Joining the Fight Against Hepatitis
By: ptcadminacess



The Department of Health estimates that as much as 16% of Filipino adults suffer from chronic hepatitis B infection while approximately 1% of the estimated 100 million Filipinos have chronic hepatitis C. With these statistics in mind, the company’s Human Resources Department organized a seminar on Hepatitis, conducted by Dra. Faith Barsaga, Occupational Health Physician of Medicard, last August 31, 2017 at the Legaspi Room of First Maritime Place. As part of the continuing PTC Health & Wellness Lecture Series 2017, the seminar provided the employees and GMPs who attended the talk with an overview of the disease, as well as its causes, symptoms, treatment and prevention.
