Immunisation, HepB3 (As % Of One-Year-Old Children)

The child immunisation rate for hepatitis B is the percentage of children aged 12-23 months who received vaccinations before the age of 12 months or at any time before the survey. A child is considered adequately immunised after three doses. Hepatitis B is a major public health problem worldwide. Approximately 30% of the world's population, or about 1.8 billion persons, have serologic evidence of hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection. Of these, an estimated 350 million have chronic HBV infection and at least 500,000 chronically infected persons die each year from liver cancer and cirrhosis. A safe and effective vaccine against HBV infection has been available for nearly 20 years. At least 85%-90% of HBV-associated deaths are vaccine-preventable.
