Abstract A cross sectional study was conducted to determine the seroprevalence of Hepatitis A, B, and C virus in healthy Pakistani children. HAV IgG antibody was assayed in 258 subjects and it was found that 94\% children by 5 years of age had HAV IgG-antibody. The overall seroprevalence of HAV IgG antibody was 55.8\% and IgM 5.3\%. HBVsAb levels assayed in 236 healthy children showed a seroprevalence of 2.97\%. Similarly, HCV antibody seroprevalence was found to be a low 0.44\% in healthy children. HAV is a major cause of Hepatitis, as compared to HBV and HCV which are of low endemicity.
