Present study was carried out to find out seropositivity of HBsAg among the hospital based population. A total of 6575 blood samples were collected from outdoor and indoor patients were further subjected rapid immunoassay for the detection of Hepatitis B surface antigen. Result: A total of 6575 serum samples were screened for Hepatitis-B surface antigen, out of which 4669 samples were from outdoor patients and 1906 samples were from indoor patients. The result of HBsAg rapid screening reveals that overall seropositivity is 72(1.10%) in our hospital based population. Conclusion: Present study concludes that the control and prevention of HBV infection require continuous monitoring as well as evaluation of prevention and surveillance strategies.

Keywords: HBsAg,blood samples,rapid immunoassay Sero-prevalence.
