Okyeame Kwame upon observing the high rate stated, the government, most importantly the ministry of health must do more to make sure that the number of death caused by Hepatitis related cancers can decrease. The ministry of health must organize stakeholders again; assemble all NGOs fighting the deadly Hepatitis together, as well as drugs/medication importers, doctors who are investigation Hepatitis and researchers who are organizing data must come together to have a holistic strategy that can combat Hepatitis forever.
