• Chronic hepatitis B virus infection can lead to liver disease, cirrhosis, liver cancer, and premature death.
• Screen all people at risk for hepatitis B virus infection and vaccinate patients who are not immune.
• For patients with chronic hepatitis B virus infection, provide counseling, evaluation for liver cancer, and treatment or referral for treatment if indicated.
