Death from liver cancer or liver failure occurs in 1 in four chronic Hepatitis B carriers. Most chronic Hepatitis B carriers in the Philippines remain undiagnosed with as many as 1 in 10 infected with the disease. Hep B transmission can occur during blood transfusions, sharing needles, unprotected sex, contact with open infected wounds as well as being passed on by the mother during birth. Vaccination is effective in preventing Hepatitis B.
