    Epidemiol Infect 141:916-25. 2013
    ..Targeted hepatitis B testing and immunization of migrants from intermediate- and high-prevalence countries is likely to be a more effective measure to reduce childhood transmission than a universal infant immunization programme...

    Sarah Dougan
    HIV and STI Department, Health Protection Agency Centre for Infections, London, UK
