The Nigerian Commission under the leadership of Dr. Mike Omotosho has not laid down the vaccine vial. It is true that the Hepatitis Zero Week has long been over where over 50,000 hepatitis screenings and vaccinations were given accross the 36 states of Nigeria but the City of Abuja still sees a wave of selfess humanitarian activities since he took over the mantle of leadership. In partnership with other organizations such as the Jabi Lake Mall, Phillips Pharmaceuticals, Moriah Trust Limited and bringing to bare his wealth of experience and years of expertise through the Mike Omotosho Foundation and the Sustainable Healthcare International, the Nigerian Commisson has enagaged in Community Outreaches where free hepatitis screenings and subsidized vaccinations are still being carried out.
With over 800 screenings and over 500 vaccinations in just 4 days recently held at the Jabi Lake Mall in Abuja, the Commission is hopeful that it would meet its 2030 Goal which is the transmission of hepatitis cases to Zero in Nigeria as it aims to take these outreaches to other locations both in and outside Abuja.
Dr. Omotosho, who is Governor Emeritus District 9125 of the Rotary International calls on all Nigerians and relevant stakeholders to join in the fight to eliminate hepatitis emphasizing it as a Public Health challenge and threat.
