Abstract


Our project comprises of assessment of awareness about HCV modes of transmission & implementation rate of preventive measures to prevent hepatitis C in different literacy groups. We want to find out the reason of spread of hepatitis C either there is lack of awareness or there is lack of follow up of precautionary measures. In this regard, we designed a questionnaire according to WHO guidelines & got it filled from different education levels. We also gave the awareness about the disease to the general public. After the survey we analyzed & calculated the percentages of awareness about Hepatitis C & follow up rates of precautionary measures in the individuals. We assessed that the literacy group of primary level had lowest awareness with lowest follow up rates. And the literacy group of under-graduate level had maximum awareness & follow up. Thus there is a need of awareness about the disease at primary level in order to minimize the risk of getting Hepatitis C as the incidence of Hepatitis is increasing due to negligence in implementation of preventive measures.

Author Keywords: mode of transmission, Implementation, follow up, modes of transmission, implementation rate.
