ABSTRACT
Objective: This study determined the HbsAg seropositivity and other related factors among women living in the Sanliurfa district among seasonal farm workers. Methods: This cross-sectional study was carried out within the service area of the Zeliha Öncel Family Health Center between October 2011-January 2012 in the Sanliurfa district. All pregnant women (N=261) enrolled by a family health center were included in the study. A structured questionnaire was applied. The levels of HBsAg and anti-HBs measures were taken from family health centers records. Results: HbsAg seropositivity was 3.2% in pregnant women. HBsAg seropositivity was 5.1 times in seasonal farmworker and 18.9 times greater in families with a history of hepatitis B (p<0.05). Conclusions: Seasonal farworkers are an important risk group for hepatitis B. Primary health care should be made accessible to seasonal farmworkers and the demands for health care should be increased through health education. Antenatal care should be provided to all pregnant women and hepatitis B vaccine should be advised for those who are susceptible to HBV.
