MetadataShow full item record
In 2016, PAHO published Hepatitis B and C in the Spotlight: A public health response in the Americas, the first regional report on viral hepatitis. It provides an overview of the epidemiology of hepatitis B (HBV) and hepatitis C (HCV) in the Americas, and the national responses implemented by countries and territories in the Region. The present report builds on the previous one, and updates key aspects of public health e orts to control the viral hepatitis epidemics in the Region. The data included in this report were submitted by countries and territories (herein refereed to only as “countries”) in the region to PAHO/WHO through the Country Response Profile on Hepatitis B and C (2016/2017) survey. Supplementary information was also obtained from country data mining exercises on viral hepatitis developed in collaboration with PAHO.
