Proposed Project: Evaluation of Viral Hepatitis B Educational Slide Materials—New—National Center for Infectious Disease (NCID), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The purpose of the proposed study is to assess the usefulness of the Hepatitis B and You, an educational slide set located on the website of the Hepatitis Branch, NCID, CDC. The Hepatitis B and You educational slide set is used to educate persons about hepatitis B in general and more specifically the importance of hepatitis B vaccination to prevent perinatal transmission of hepatitis B virus (HBV). An estimated 1.25 million Americans are chronically infected with HBV and 4,000 to 5,000 die each year due to resultant cirrhosis and liver cancer. The estimated cost associated with HBV infections is $700 million a year in medical care and lost work days. The annualized total burden is 414 hours.
