Although hepatitis B is a major public health problem globally, mass vaccination against this virus is yet to be implemented in many countries
of the world, including in India, which happens to be one of the most populous nations in the globe. Hepatitis Foundation of Tripura has
become a role model in combating this virus in the small north-eastern Indian state of Tripura. With infrastructural help from the Tripura
Government, the foundation has done a commendable job of vaccinating 0.25 million out of 3.65 million population of the state, setting an
unique example of public partnership in sustaining hepatitis B virus.
