 Background: World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that about 350 million people are infected with Hepatitis B virus (HBV) worldwide. It is estimated that about 2 million people die from HBV complications such as cirrhosis, hepatocellular carcinoma every year. The aim of this study was to determine the frequency of HBsAg+ among women referring to Niknafs Delivery Center of Rafsanjan (NDCR), from April to July 2003.

 Materials and Methods: This was a cross- sectional descriptive study evaluating 600 pregnant women referring to NDCR from April to July 2003. Serum samples were checked for HBsAg+ by ELISA 0/13. Data were recorded and analysed by SPSS 11.5 Soft Ware using x 2 Fisher tests.

 Results: According to the results of this study from 600 pregnant women 8(1.3%) were HBsAg+ (1.26%-1.35%,CI 95%). The mean age was 26.2 ±5.3 and the mean number of pregnancies were 2.14±1.4. There were significant differences in the history of husband’s IVD-usage, tatooing, previous IVD usage, not being native, between the two groups (p<0.05).

 Conclusion: Considering the frequancy of HBsAg+ in this study in order to reduce the infection and morbidity rate of HBsAg+ in women, mass education at the time of marriage and prenatal period is needed.

 

 Key words: Frequency, Heptitis B Infection HBsAg+, Pregnant women, Rafsanjan
