Hepatitis Surveillance Program

The Hepatitis Surveillance Program is responsible for the ongoing and systematic collection, analysis, interpretation and dissemination of population-based information about persons diagnosed with non-perinatal hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV) and hepatitis D virus (HDV) in Ohio.  Surveillance activities are performed to monitor the disease burden among affected populations and to target and assess hepatitis prevention efforts.

Hepatitis surveillance statistics and epidemiologic summaries are produced throughout the year.  Surveillance data is analyzed and provided to state and local hepatitis programs, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for hepatitis prevention, planning, evaluation and resource allocation.
