A much needed national blood screening campaign
Chitral: After the startling revelation of large scale presence of HIV infection amongst people in Sargodha (Video below), it has become necessary that a nationwide blood screening of the whole population be carried out for contagious viruses. This can be done on the pattern of administering polio drops. Such an effort can check the health standard of the nation and determine ways and means to treat contagious blood diseases in the early stages when detected. The population explosion coupled with absense of heathcare can play havoc on the general health index of the country if not attended to in time. .. CN report, 03 Mar 2018.
