Abdul-Ghaffar Donkor [1] , Namaitijiang Maimaiti [2]


Amaç: Bu çalışmada, Gana ve Nijerya'da bulunan kan bağışçıları arasındaki hepatit B prevalansının sistematik bir derleme ile karşılaştırılması amaçlamıştır.

Materyal ve Metot: Gana ve Nijerya'da kan donörleri arasında hepatit B prevalansı üzerinde karşılaştırmalı sistematik bir derleme yapıldı. İncelenen makaleler 2010 ve 2017 yılları arasında yapılmıştır.

Bulgular: Gana'daki kan donörleri arasında hepatit B'nin prevalansı %7,23 ile %14,60 arasındayken, Nijerya'daki kan donörleri arasında yaygınlık oranı %7,50 ile %19,90 arasındadır.

Sonuç: Her iki ülkede hepatit B için endemik olmakla birlikte, Nijerya'daki kan donörleri arasında hepatit B'nin yaygınlık oranı Gana'daki kan donörlerinden daha yüksektir.

Objectives: This study aims to compare the prevalence of hepatitis B among blood donors in Ghana and Nigeria through a systematic review.

Materials and Methods: A comparative-systematic review was conducted on the prevalence of hepatitis B among blood donors in Ghana and Nigeria. The articles reviewed were conducted including years from 2010 to 2017.

Results: The prevalence rate of hepatitis B among blood donors in Ghana ranged from 7.23% to 14.60%, while the prevalence rate among blood donors in Nigeria ranged from 7.50% to 19.90%.

Conclusion: Therefore, the prevalence rate of hepatitis B among blood donors in Nigeria is higher than the prevalence rate of hepatitis B among blood donors in Ghana though both countries are still considered hepatitis B endemic countries.
