Liver Disease Awareness Week 2013

The inaugural Liver Disease Awareness Week (LDAW) was held from 28 Jul 2013 to 3 Aug 2013. This was organised by HPBA(S) together with the Hepatitis B Support Group, Health Promotion Board and Ministry of Health. The objective was to raise awareness of liver diseases in the public. LDAW began with a full-day Liver Symposium on 28 Jul 2013 at the College of Medicine Auditorium, for health professionals and the general public. The Guest of Honour was Dr Amy Khor, Minister of State for Health. During the week, free Hepatitis B screening was conducted at various community centres for under-privileged residents. A total of 747 residents were screened over the four days. On the last day of the week, free ultrasound screening was provided for those who were tested positive for Hepatitis B.
