The Perinatal Hepatitis B Prevention Program was established in 1991 to prevent
hepatitis B transmission from pregnant women to their infants and household and
sexual contacts. Prevention of perinatal hepatitis B transmission requires the coordinated transfer of information between prenatal care providers, laboratories, hospitals, primary care providers and the local/state health departments.
