In November 2016, a team of FIRE volunteers distributed much-needed food and supplies to the elderly in the Langtang Valley. It was the first relief effort in the village of Wangal since the earthquake in April 2015.
This year, 65 representatives from state, private and community organizations, local and international organizations gathered for "Thank You" event to show appreciation for those who have helped support the Ministry of Health's new "Healthy Liver" program.
In addition to creating awareness in the community about hepatitis, this event also gave stakeholders who are fighting for hepatitis elimination in Mongolia an opportunity to meet, exchange ideas, and discuss the future.
Dr. A. Tsogtsetseg, Minister of Health said: "We can reduce the spread of hepatitis only by working together, including the citizens themselves, the State and non-state entities, health sector, private sector, civil society, and the media. The proof of what can be achieved when we work together is the successful implementation of the 'Healthy Liver' National Program."
