Hepatitis B

Sexually Transmitted Diseases
Hepatitis B is a contagious liver disease caused by hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection.

Most people can fight off a hepatitis B infection without treatment. But people who can't clear the virus develop a life-long infection (chronic hepatitis B). In these people, the infection can cause permanent liver damage, and even death.

There is no cure for chronic hepatitis B infection. An estimated 350 million people around the world suffer from it.
