All-Ukrainian Campaign “Uninvited Guests”: Prevention and Treatment of Pediculosis in Children

Date: December 2020 – February 2021

Pediculosis in children and young people is a quite common and very unpleasant disease; its outbreaks become more frequent when children return home from places of public recreation and begin visiting preschools, schools, residential care centres and the like.

The Charity Fund UWCF, within the framework of the charitable program “Walking to the Health Land”, as part of the project “Our Health Is in Our Hands” together with the Representative office of Sopharma AD in Ukraine, launched the All-Ukrainian campaign “Uninvited Guests”: Prevention and Treatment of Pediculosis in Children (helping children’s homes, neuropsychiatric residential care centres, children’s residential care centres, specialized comprehensive residential schools, rehabilitation centres, family-type homes, children’s sanatoriums, problem families, etc.) in the fight against head lice.

For the treatment of head lice, it is necessary to use only those anti-pediculosis medicines that are authorized by the State Expert Centre of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine.

Sopharma AD in Ukraine offers ways to get rid of such a disease, provides assistance in the form of remedies for head lice and prevention: Hygia Active (hair mask) and Hygia Protect (spray for the prevention of lice infestation).

For the prevention and treatment of pediculosis in children, the All-Ukrainian campaign “Uninvited Guests”, launched by UWCF and the Representative office of Sopharm AD in Ukraine, donated Hygia Active hair mask and Hygia Protect spray, in the amount of UAH 508,405.80, to 55 organisations from almost all regions of Ukraine.
