Perinatal Hep B Prevention Program

If you have recently learned that you have Hepatitis B and are planning to have a child, the Perinatal Hepatitis B Prevention Program (PHBPP) is here to help protect your baby and others from Hepatitis B.

The program provides case management for infants born to mothers who test positive for Hepatitis B at the time of delivery in order to help stop the transmission of the disease. The Hepatitis B virus can be spread to a baby during childbirth.

If you have any questions, contact your Healthcare Provider or the PHBPP at 210.207.2088.
