The prevalence of HBV infection and the method of transmission vary greatly around the world.  In countries with a high prevalence of chronic HBV infection, the most common route of infection is from mother to child at birth or from child to child during early childhood.  In areas of low prevalence, the infection is usually acquired during adulthood through intravenous drug use or high-risk sexual activity.
