Bilharzia, “a silent killer”. The poignant witness of Robert K, 24-year-old, Uganda.

Robert Kabu* is a 24-year-old student from Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda. 10 years ago, he got infected by schistosomiasis in the Victoria Lake, where he used to go and play with his schoolmates. After many years of fear and pain, Robert is now cured and has decided to get involved in the fight against schistosomiasis, liver cirrhosis and varices in the region. Through his experience, he is in a better position to raise awareness about the damaging effect of schistosomiasis on the liver and the importance of prevention.
