A Mixed Methods Approach to Understanding Perinatal Hepatitis B Disparities in Philadelphia

Pregnant women at doctor's appointment.

Drexel Medicine and School of Public Health are currently conducting a study with women that are found be to positive for hepatitis B during pregnancy and up to five years postpartum. We are conducting a survey with these women to determine what they understand about hepatitis B and what barriers and facilitators they face in getting care for their chronic condition and vaccinating their infants for hepatitis B.
