Abstract

Background: Hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver, most generally brought on by a viral infection. In Malaysia, as indicated by Ministry of Health, there have been 5% of Malaysians infected with hepatitis B. Inadequate knowledge regarding Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) may put our teenagers at risk of the infection. Objective: This study was carried out to evaluate the knowledge of Hepatitis B among undergraduate students at Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) Selangor, Puncak Alam Campus. Methods: A cross sectional study design was conducted using a survey questionnaire and was distributed to 367 undergraduate students at Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) Selangor, Puncak Alam Campus. Result: The findings show that there is no statistically difference between knowledge of hepatitis B with demographic characteristics which are age, gender, ethnicity, faculty of study and years of study (p>0.05). About 66.3% of the participants do not know about Hepatitis B. Conclusion: As a conclusion, knowledge about Hepatitis B among undergraduate students was poor. There is no significance difference between knowledge of Hepatitis B and selected socio demographic data such as gender, age, faculty, and years of education.
