This week, the Rotary Club of Playa del Carmen Seaside and the Rotary Club of Tulum will be teaming up to support the Hepatitis Zero World Eradication Project taking place all across Mexico and the Americas.
The tests will be carried out by state and municipal health officials with the support of Rotary volunteers beginning July 22. The tests are free of charge and involve a simple finger-stick blood test. The results are available in about three minutes. Individuals who are determined to be symptomatic will be directed to a cure, which involves nothing more than a series of pills taken over three months.
The Rotary Clubs of Tulum and Playa del Carmen Seaside are proud to be able to support this effort to eradicate Hepatitis C around the world and especially in our own communities. For more information, visit the official website http://www.hepatitiszeroweek.com.
