Hepatitis B viral (HBV) infection remains an important public health concern particularly in Africa. In Ghana, about 12.3% of the adult population are chronically infected with the hepatitis B virus. The main objective of this dissertation is to better understand the hepatitis B testing and treatment cascade, in addition to exploring psychosocial concerns for people with hepatitis B (PWHB) in Ghana. These studies were necessary to assist in developing culturally appropriate interventions that could enhance Ghana’s chance of achieving hepatitis B elimination in line with the World Health Organization (WHO) target by 2030.
