Mother‐to‐child transmission of hepatitis B: What more needs to be done to eliminate it around the world?

Abstract

Mother-to-child transmission (MTCT) of hepatitis B virus (HBV) is a key component of the hepatitis B burden worldwide. Despite its efficacy to prevent HBV transmission, infant vaccination is not enough to control HBV MTCT. Additional efforts are urgently needed to evaluate and scale-up preventive strategies especially in endemic countries, which are most affected. This review highlights the efficacy and barriers of the currently validated measures for the prevention of HBV MTCT and proposes alternatives adapted to resource-limited settings to eventually achieve HBV elimination worldwide.
