Hello, so after a lengthy research from various sources, it has been confirmed that a lot of youths on (UI) campus have the deadly disease known as HEPATITIS B also called HBV, Hep B.

What is HEPATITIS B?

Hepatitis B (HBV) is a liver disease caused by the hepatitis B virus, HEPATITIS B is currently spreading widely with More than 1.5 million cases per year (Nigeria).

When most hepatitis B infections lasts more
than six months, it can develop into chronic hepatitis B, which can lead to chronic inflammation of the liver, cirrhosis (scarring of the liver), liver cancer, and/or liver failure.

It's so amazing, that with the rate of increase of infected youths the AWARENESS of this disease to students, youths and adults all over Nigeria is very low.

Many students on campus don't even know yet especially most involved in different sexual acts.

How is HEPATITIS B contacted?

The hepatitis B virus is spread through contact with body fluids of an infected person, such as blood, semen, vaginal fluids, and saliva. Unlike the hepatitis A virus, hepatitis B virus is not spread through contaminated food or water. Hepatitis B can be passed on through sexual contact or needle-sharing/accidental needle sticks. Therefore, majority of ladies should caution theirselves or abstain from kissing, oral sex, hugging someone sweating etc
