Emphasizing that everyone is likely to encounter hepatitis viruses, Prof. Dr. Fehmi Tabak stated that he learned that many people carry the virus by chance and continued as follows: “It is possible for a completely healthy person to learn that he is a carrier of type B hepatitis after a blood donation or to hear that he has chronic hepatitis during routine blood checks. It can not be predicted how much one’s psychology can change unnecessarily by learning exaggerated and hearsay information about hepatitis.
It’s not hard to do. For this reason, our aim is to inform the society correctly and to be successful in the fight against the disease. The fight against hepatitis, on the other hand, is together with health workers, lawmakers, health policy makers and the society.”
