According to data from the Ministry of Health, the whole country has about 10 million cases of hepatitis B virus infection and nearly 1 million people infected with hepatitis C virus. The worrying problem is that 90% of patients do not know about their status.
How is HBV transmitted?
HBV is transmitted through activities that involve percutaneous (i.e., puncture through the skin) or mucosal contact with infectious blood or body fluids (e.g., semen and saliva), including:
- sex with an infected partner;
- injection-drug use that involves sharing needles, syringes, or drug-preparation equipment;
- birth to an infected mother;
- contact with blood from or open sores on an infected person;
- exposures to needle sticks or sharp instruments; and
- sharing certain items with an infected person who can break the skin or mucous membranes (e.g., razors, toothbrushes, and glucose monitoring equipment), potentially leading to exposure to blood.
Who is in danger of HBV infection?
The following populations are at increased risk for becoming infected with HBV:
- Infants born to infected mothers
- Sex partners of infected people
- Men who make love with men
- People who inject drugs
- Household contacts or sexual partners of known people with chronic HBV infection
- Health-care and public-safety workers in danger for occupational exposure to blood or blood-contaminated body fluids
- Hemodialysis patients
