In response to a question, Dr Gul said that hepatitis was spreading because of ignorance and lack of hygiene among the many individuals stressing upon consciousness campaigns for most of the people in Balochistan. 

She said to raise awareness in this regard; Lady Health Workers Program, Maternal Newborn and Child Health Program, Child Health Program, Department of Health Education, Mercy Corps, UNICEF and other international and national NGOs had been requested to educate people against hepatitis in their areas.

Provincial Coordinator said free screening centers were set up in 32 districts of Balochistan adding that Hepatitis Control Program would hold free camps for diagnosis of Hepatitis in remote and high risk areas of the province despite conducting seminars for Mass Screening Advocacy. Replying to a query, Dr Gul Sabin said that Rs 190,000 to Rs 230,000 were being spent on the treatment of each Hepatitis-D patient; however, the Hepatitis Program was offering free treatment to the patients in Balochistan

Historical relationship between Kurd and Baloch.

The Kurds are the ethnical group living in a region known as Kurdistan which is divided into Iraq, Syria, Turkey and Iran. They  are struggling for an independent region since decades and they are famous for their female guerrilla fighters.        On 25 September 2017, the referendum for an independent Kurdish region  was held in Iraq with a turn out of 72 %.   On this important occasion, the historical relation between Kurd and Baloch people is worth discussing.       When it comes to history, every nation tends to find its roots and origin. Same goes with the Baloch people. The Baloch people are always curious  about  finding their roots in history. Even if you  talk to a shepherd in Balochistan, he will be curious to talk about his  tribal or ethnical roots.      The Balochs have always conveyed the history to the next generations in different mediums like poems etc. No Baloch before 20th century had written books on  history  or origin of the Baloch nation .
