Liver cancer, a large proportion of which is attributable to hepatitis B, is the fastest increasing cause of cancer death in Australia. There are an estimated 5,100 people living with chronic hepatitis B in the Northern Sydney Local Health District, and 9,140 people living with CHB in the Inner West Sydney LHD. Of those with CHB nearly 80% were born overseas, with one of the predominant countries being Korea.
