To help digest the rich Hepatitis B Birth Dose evidence base, we developed a Synthesis brief. In this brief, you can find the list of references in the evidence base and an overview of their findings on effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of the birth dose, as well as a summary of the barriers to implementation and mitigating solutions described across the articles.

See Synthesis Brief attached.
