Hepatitis B can lead to chronic liver damage and can be contracted via infected blood, sexual contact / exchange of bodily fluids, sharing needles and potentially from mother to child. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO) Hepatitis B prevalence is highest in sub-Saharan Africa and East Asia, where between 5–10% of the adult population is chronically infected. According to the WHO Hepatitis C is most common in Africa and Central and East Asia.
