City Desk :
Creating a wide-ranging mass-awareness can be the vital means of preventing hepatitis viruses particularly B and C as those are gradually taking a heavy toll on society and the nation as well.
"The number of patients suffering from various liver diseases like hepatitis and liver cirrhosis is increasing in our society for lack of knowledge about prevention of those," said Professor Mamun Al Mahtab, Head of Department of Hepatology in Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Medical University, while addressing a seminar as focal person.
Department of Botany in Rajshahi University (RU) recently organized the seminar titled "Causes of Hepatitis and Liver cirrhosis and Treatment Facilities of those in Bangladesh and Way forward" at the department lecture gallery in Rajshahi.
Professor Harun-Or-Rashid, Head of Hepatology Department in Rajshahi Medical College Hospital, also addressed the seminar as resource person.
RU Vice-Chancellor Prof Abdus Sobhan and its Pro-VCs Prof Ananda Kumar Shaha and Prof Chowdhury Jakaria spoke on the occasion as guests of honour with Prof Golam Kabir, Chairman of the department in the chair.
Disseminating his expertise Professor Mamun mentioned infection of the hepatitis viruses as fire without flame and a silent killer. He put emphasis on the need of collective efforts to address the transmission of the viruses.
