Hepatitis B in East African People
This is an interview with several experts led by Dr. Carlos del Rio, a public health professor at the Emory School of public health and founder and Director of the Travel Clinic at Emory University Hospital Midtown. The interview covers the effect of Hepatitis B on the immigrant community. Many immigrants from East Africa and other parts of the world where Hepatitis B is endemic come to the U.S A having been already exposed to the infection and are either carriers or immune through past infection. The interview focused on the nature of the disease, prevention, mode of transmission, immunization and management of illness.
