The HepB Calculator

The HepB Calculator was developed by the Asian Liver Center at Stanford University, the School of Public Health University of Michigan and the World Health Organization. Users are able to enter specific costs relating to hepatitis B disease management and treatment for 28 countries. The calculator then models health and cost outcomes over a set time period, showing scenarios with and without hepatitis B treatment included. This enables users to see how much treatment can increase health for someone living with hepatitis B and if it is cost saving in the long term. Click here to view the calculator.
