Abstract : Hepatitis B is a parenterally and sexually transmitted disease of global importance. The disease runs more frequently a subclinical and anicteric course, with a significative rate of cases that become chronic. Chronic hepatitis may progress to cirrhosis or cancer. The strategies by which Hepatitis B can be diminished and eventually eliminated are: immunization, measures to prevent exposure to infective blood or blood derivatives and education (in particular awareness that hepatitis B is a sexually transmitted disease).
