Hepatitis B is very common worldwide. Most people with Hepatitis B were infected with the virus at birth or during early childhood and developed a lifelong chronic infection. Many of those infected are unaware that they have Hepatitis B, especially since they may not have symptoms. As a result, they can unknowingly spread the disease to others, including people they live with, sexual partners, and - for women - their newborns.

乙型肝炎在全世界非常普遍。大多數人感染乙型肝炎病毒是在出生時或幼儿期，並導致終身的慢性感染。許多感染者不知道他們有乙型肝炎，尤其是沒有症狀者。因此就可能在不知不覺中將疾病傳播給他人，包括與他們一起生活的人，性伴侶，以及 –對女性來說 - 他們的新生兒。
