Zonta Alabang Vaccinates 80 Mothers for Healthy Liver

A disease awareness advocacy project against liver cancer called “Mothers for Healthy Liver… para kay baby” was held last  September 28, 2013 at Festival Mall, Alabang.  The activity which was kindly sponsored by Zonta Club, Alabang  aims to vaccinate 80 mothers who were previously screened negative for hepatitis B.

Hepatitis B is the leading cause of liver cancer, in fact, HBV is the second leading cancer – causing agent. Statistics says that 1 out of 8 Filipino adults is infected with HBV.
