ABSTRACT
Shoaib is a young, healthy male who works around 12 hours daily at a local barber shop in one of the busiest localities of Karachi. But there is a dark side to Shoaib that none of his clients know. He is amongst the 4.9 percent population of Pakistan who are Hepatitis C positive. Barbers of third world countries like Pakistan have often been implicated in the transmission of infectious agents like Hepatitis C through the repeated use of razors and scissors for different customers without sterilizing them first.
