This scoping review summarizes and appraises the evidence from published and grey literature on improving coverage of the hepatitis B birth dose vaccine. The review looks at implementation evidence in relation to two main questions: • What practices improve coverage of the hepatitis B birth dose? • What are important facilitators and barriers to improving coverage of the birth dose? The purpose of the review is to contribute to an evidence base on which to develop programmatic guidance for delivery of the birth dose, both in settings where this is being introduced for the first time, and in those requiring strengthening of services for birth dose vaccination.
