The challenges of managing these conditions in an optimal manner are many, including limitations of resources, hepatologists, and healthcare facilities; the differences in cultural beliefs; a lack of universal education and the awareness of diseases and their modes of transmission; and increased prevalence of underlying poverty and malnutrition etc.  This video has brought out the prevalence of the disease burden and clinical studies that identify the causes and many interlinked factors of the disease progression.
