Public awareness campaign to improve hepatitis B birth dose coverage in Vietnam, Stanford Asian Liver Center, General Department of Preventive Medicine, Vietnam Ministry of Health, WHO Western Pacific Region

Chronic hepatitis B infection from mother to child transmission is the major cause of chronic liver disease and liver cancer in Vietnam. Although a safe and effective vaccine given within 24 hours of birth could prevent most cases of vertical transmission, many are unaware of its importance in liver cancer prevention, and birth dose coverage in Vietnam remains poor. This project aims to increase public awareness to improve hepatitis B birth dose coverage.
