Adama's Story

After suspecting something was wrong for a while, Adama’s mother passed away without a diagnosis or treatment. It wasn’t until 10 years later, when Adama tested positive for hepatitis B and experienced the same symptoms, that he realized his mom had suffered from the same virus. Adama is now managing his hepatitis B and receiving treatment but is concerned about the low awareness of hepatitis B in his community.

Adama's story is available in English, French, and Mandingo.
