Our challenges from Hellenic Association for the Study of the Liver, Schering Plough and Roche, were the information of the general public, the special interest groups, the patients and the medical community for Hepatitis, its diagnosis, prevention and treatment. The training of doctors on diagnosis, prevention and treatment and the creation of hepatology centres in public hospitals. The campaign was launched in 1987 and last 27 years.
TV spots, website for hepatitis, advertisements, press conference, press releases but also the creation of a help line and educational seminar around Greece were some of the tools used for the information campaign.
Today doctors know how to diagnose , prevent and treatment hepatitis, the special interest groups and the wide public are aware and hepatology centres are located inside of the majority of public hospitals and in all university hospitals.
