Mongolia reports 1.1 case of hepatitis per 10,000 people

A total of 1.3 million people had been screened for communicable diseases under the “Healthy Lives” programme.  Under the programme, 5,100 cases of hepatitis had been detected in four months.  Several thousand people had received treatment for hepatitis B and C under that programme.  There was now 1.1 case of hepatitis per 10,000 people.  In 2011, there were 52.8 cases.  Hepatitis vaccines had been administered to children starting in 1992.

The Ministry of Health had been investigating high-risk services, such as tattoo parlours, for hepatitis.  70 percent of the cost of medications was covered by State insurance.

Tuberculosis cases had decreased by 33 percent since 2020, a positive outcome of COVID-19 prevention measures.  An international forum on tuberculosis would be held in Mongolia later in 2022.  Patients with tuberculosis were provided with treatment in their homes.  Funding for tuberculosis treatments and screening programmes had been increased three-fold.  Screening programmes also tested for sexually transmitted infections.
