Hepatitis B is a virus that infects the liver. It is very infectious, more so than the AIDS virus.
HOW SERIOUS IS THE PROBLEM?
It is very epidemic in some parts of the world and is now on the increase in the world.
Most people with hepatitis recover, although some have a long and serious illness. It may be fatal in people who get cirrhosis or cancer of the liver from it. 5- 10% of sufferers become carriers.
WHAT IS A HEPATITIS B CARRIER?
A carrier is a person who has not been able to get rid of the virus from his or her body. Carriers are a risk to other people and have a responsibility to tell dentists, doctors and other people about this. The doctor will advise on how to cope.
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF HEPATITIS B?
This depends on whether the attack of hepatitis is acute or chronic. The acute attack produces a flu- like illness and yellow skin, jaundice. The chronic form comes on slowly and is more serious. It may take months from the time you get the virus until the illness develops. Some people may never have symptoms.
HOW IS HEPATITIS B SPREAD?
The virus is carried in all body fluids: blood, saliva, semen, and vaginal secretions, breast milk, tears and perspiration. It is usually picked up by absorption of infected blood through cuts and sores in the skin, by sexual intercourse or by sharing infected items such as razor blades, toothbrushes, needles, and syringes. Procedures such as ear piercing and tattooing can also spread it. The commonest ways are through intravenous drug use and sexual intercourse with carriers.
WHO ARE AT HIGHEST RISK OF HEPATITIS B?
IS THERE A HEPATITIS B CURE?
VACCINATIONSThis involves a course of 3 injections
WHAT IS THE TREATMENT FOR HEPATITIS B?
Carriers should follow the ‘good hygiene’ guidelines. They should eat a normal healthy diet and reduce any alcohol to no more than one standard drink per day. If there is a liver damage, interferon may be prescribed.

Romina Libster: The power of herd immunity
How do vaccines prevent disease — even among people too young to get vaccinated? It's a concept called "herd immunity," and it relies on a critical mass of people getting their shots to break the chain of infection. Health researcher Romina Libster shows how herd immunity contained a deadly outbreak of H1N1 in her hometown. (In Spanish with subtitles.)
