The Need

Despite the availability of effective medical measures, it is a sad reality that each day people die from readily preventable and treatable illnesses, largely attributable to lack of access to resources.

Early intervention has globally been demonstrated to significantly reduce disease and to save lives.

Ghana has a population of 29 million. Approximately 12.3% suffer from Hepatitive B (HBV). In the United States, less than 1% of the population are affected.
