How common is hepatitis B?

 How common is hepatitis B?
In Canada, there are usually less than 1,000 new infections per year. Most cases come from sharing needles or having sex with a carrier. Lots of babies used to be born with hepatitis B, but this doesn’t happen very often anymore. Pregnant women are tested for the disease. Babies whose mothers have the disease get the vaccine and hepatitis B immune globulin (a shot with a large amount of antibodies) soon after they are born.

In other parts of the world, hepatitis B is more common than in Canada and still infects many babies. If you travel to China, southeast Asia or some parts of Africa, you may be at higher risk, especially if you have sex with local people, use drugs with a needle, or need a blood transfusion.

vertical transmission po sa babies, they get it if their mothers are infected and this may or maynot persist for life
Hepatitis B is common in the Southern areas of the Philippines but may also be prevalent in Manila because of unsafe sex practices
Not all people here are vaccinated
aside from drug addicts it is also common in prisons where most inmates engaged in unsafe M2M sex practices
