At Chittagong’s Abdur Rahman Govt. Girls' High School and Shawshankmala Govt. Primary School, our team performed blood grouping and hepatitis B screening, free of cost to the participants. All participants were thanked with CHRF gift hampers for their time and cooperation. This program is part of a larger study to generate evidence on typhoid burden and detect which areas in Bangladesh are to be prioritised for the introduction of the typhoid conjugate vaccine (TCV).
But how can we visit schools with bright young minds and not have discussions about science and scientists?
