Hepatitis E in Bangladesh

In this study, we aim to provide new insights into hepatitis E transmission, burden and care-seeking through analyses of serologic and other data from a longitudinal study of the general population in Sitakunda Bangladesh in addition to conducting genomic analyses of hepatitis E viruses collected through a national surveillance system. The goal of this work is not only to improve our understanding of HEV in Bangladesh, but to inform future work on hepatitis E burden and vaccine use globally.
