ABSTRACT: In this study, a total of 120 sera from health care workers were screened for markers of hepatitis B, C and immuno deficiency viruses. HBsAG was detected in 5.8 percent health care workers. Anti HBs IgG was present in 4.2 percent and anti HBc IgM in 2.5 percent of the HCW tested. The total seroprevalence of HBV was observed to be 12.5 percent. None to the sera tested were positive for anti HCV and anti HIV antibodies.
