Although hepatitis delta is considered hyperendemic to Romania and hundreds of thousands of hepatitis B patients are affected, it still remains largely unknown to the medical community. A lack of awareness and screening contribute to the persistent prevalence of the disease and create an urgent need for increased provider education and system-wide changes.
