      The WHO Global hepatitis report describes, for the first time, the global and regional estimates on viral hepatitis in , setting the baseline for tracking progress in implementing the new Global Health Sector Strategy (GHSS) on viral hepatitis – Estimations of worldwide prevalence of chronic hepatitis B virus infection: a systematic review of data published between and done in the general population or among blood donors, health-care workers (HCWs), and pregnant women were considered for inclusion in this systematic review. Studies were excluded if they were systematic.

Hepatitis B immunization for health care workers is common policy in many countries where they constitute a particular at risk group.

A seroepidemiological study of hepatitis B virus (HBV) in Fiji health care workers was conducted to determine whether this occupational group (or subgroups thereof) were at higher risk of infection than the general Fiji by: 5.

A cross-sectional study of a representative Cited by:   Hepatitis B is an important occupational hazard for health care workers (HCW). In some studies, HCWs have been shown to have an up to four-fold increased risk of acquiring HBV infection [ 4, 5 ].

The main risk factor to contract HBV infection for HCWs is direct contact with infectious material, especially HBV-infected blood or via a needle stick injury with HBV-contaminated body fluids Cited by: A seroepidemiological study of hepatitis B virus (HBV) in Fiji health care workers was conducted to determine whether this occupational group (or subgroups thereof) were at higher risk of.

HBV infection, especially chronic hepatitis B, is a global health concern. The development of chronic hepatitis B is related to the age at which a person acquires HBV infection. Approximately 80–90% of people infected perinatally and 30–50% of people infected before 6 years of age develop chronic infection.

After that, the risk of Cited by: 9. Introduction. Healthcare workers (HCWs) in Botswana are at high risk for occupational exposure to two important bloodborne viruses. First, one-third of the country's adults and % of pregnant women aged 25–49 years are living with HIV infection, 1 with 50–70% of hospital beds being occupied by patients with HIV.

The prevalence of current hepatitis B virus infection and life time exposure to hepatitis B virus infection among health care workers was high. Exposure to potentially infectious body fluids was also high and yet only a small percentage of HCW are vaccinated against hepatitis B virus by:.

Seroepidemiological studies of hepatitis B were carried out on diverse groups of children () and adults () from the Pacific Island country of Vanuatu.
