HBV burden estimates in three scenarios: age-specific incidence rates are constant over time; decreasing incidence rates of 2% per year from 2012 (corresponding to increasing vaccination rates in all age groups); and decreased incidence rates of 5% per year in the under-15 years age-groups only (reflecting the effect of age-targetted vaccination).
