Perinatal Hepatitis B
Hepatitis B virus (HBV) can be passed from an infected person to their child during birth. Without proper treatment and follow up, infants are at a high risk of hepatitis B infection. Perinatal transmission of HBV can be prevented.
Our perinatal hepatitis B prevention program works to identify HBV-positive people and ensure timely and appropriate treatment is provided to their infants.
