Hepatitis B Control – Strategic Information and Country Profiles

Hepatitis B Control – Strategic Information and Country Profiles

Remarkable progress has been made in controlling hepatitis B infection in the Western Pacific Region. In 2005 the Regional Committee for the Western Pacific made a momentous decision to adopt the world’s first regional hepatitis B control goal. Resolution WPR/RC56.R8 set a goal of less than 1% hepatitis B prevalence among children with a milestone target of less than 2% prevalence by 2012. In 2012 the Region made history by achieving that milestone. The countries and areas of the Western Pacific Region have proven that a well-planned programme including evidence-based policies and careful performance measurement is a formula for success.

This document provides an overview of the hepatitis B control programme in the Western Pacific Region, and hepatitis B data profiles for the 36 countries and areas of the Region. The profiles include demographic data, vaccination policies, childbirth delivery types, reported vaccination coverage from 2008–2012, vaccination coverage and seroprevalence survey summaries, and the status of hepatitis B control verification. We are hopeful that this easy-to-ready snapshot of up-to-date data by country will be a useful tool for decision-makers in sustaining and increasing the important gains in hepatitis B control in the Western Pacific Region.

The Region has proven that suffering and death due to hepatitis B infection need not continue. Currently nine countries and areas have been verified as having reached the goal of less than 1% hepatitis B prevalence among five-year-old children. Let us continue to work together to ensure that all countries and areas achieve and sustain the goal of less than 1% hepatitis B prevalence among children, and that hepatitis B infection becomes a thing of the past.

National immunization data - EPI summaries by country

These fact sheets provide a comprehensive overview of immunization-related statistics for each country in the WHO Western Pacific Region. Among the key indicators are: immunization coverage, surveillance data for vaccine preventable diseases, immunization schedules, as well as indicators for measles elimination and hepatitis B control.

Compiled annually, they draw on the WHO/UNICEF Joint Reporting Forms on Immunization. The standardized format allows easy comparison between countries, and interpretation of graphical data such as immunization coverage by antigen.
