THE PROBLEM

Hepatitis B (HBV) is often referred to as a silent disease because it has minimal symptoms which leads to late diagnosis. Lack of awareness leads to missed opportunities for appropriate treatment and care. Amongst diagnosed patients, non-adherence to therapy is common. Around 2-7% of Indian population is affected with Hepatitis B.
