Zainab Shinkafi-Bagudu: It was an honor to chair a session hosted by UICC and World Hepatitis Alliance at Aortic 2023

Zainab Shinkafi-Bagudu posted on X/Twitter:

“The burden of Hepatitis and Liver Cancer in Africa is a quiet epidemic and public health emergency. Prevention via vaccination, awareness and better funding for treatment are key interventions we must urgently work on. It was an honor to chair a session hosted by UICC and World Hepatitis Alliance at Aortic 2023. Brilliant speakers, well coordinated organizing team and a learned interactive audience made my role very smooth.”
