Report on hepatitis B and C in Canada: 2013

This report summarizes surveillance data on cases and rates of hepatitis B virus (HBV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection in Canada, reported from 2005 to 2013. Cases are reported to the Canadian Notifiable Disease Surveillance System (CNDSS) by provincial and territorial health authorities. Although not feasible for HCV due to provincial/territorial reporting practices, data for HBV are summarized separately for acute and chronic infection where possible. Information about acute HBV offers valuable insight into current transmission trends and patterns while cases of chronic HBV infection represent the potential burden of disease in Canada.
