Abstract

Hepatitis B infection is a public health problem in this country, so much so that the vaccination has been made mandatory for infants. However in case of adults there is no such government policy, even in case of health care givers, who are known to be at a much higher risk. The study is a rapid assessment done to do asses among the health care givers like fresh young doctors, nurses and lab technicians to find out their knowledge about the disease and also about their practice of complete vaccination. The study revealed that even in this tertiary level health care facility, 13.1% of the study participants were not vaccinated and yet involved in handling of infected products. This hints a further exploration regarding the callousness of the health administrators towards this incurable yet preventable disease.

Aims & Objectives: To assess the knowledge and practice regarding Hepatitis B disease and vaccination among care givers in a tertiary hospital. To find out any association between the level of knowledge and practice if any
