Abstract
ABSTRACT
Background: Quality of life (QoL) is a multi-factorial construct that aids in describing how individuals perceive their social, psychological, and physical functioning. The central purpose of this study was to examine the correlation between the stages of chronic hepatitis B (CHB) and health related QoL (HRQoL) among afflicted patients in the Vietnamese context. This research also explored how psychological symptoms affect the HRQoL of the patients.
Methods: This cross-sectional study used the EuroQoL five dimensions (EQ-5D) self-report questionnaire with a visual analogue scale (VAS) to probe into the health utility of patients who are at different stages of CHB. The questionnaire was administered to 432 patients, among whom 115 agreed to additionally participate in interviews regarding their experiences with anxiety and depression.
Results: The mean EQ-5D score of the patients was 0.56±0.26, and their mean VAS score was 54.78±26.05. The asymptomatic hepatitis patients exhibited better HRQoL than did the post-liver transplant patients. The more severe the disease, the lower the HRQoL of the respondents. Anxiety,
depression, and fatigue were negatively correlated with health utility.
Conclusion: In Vietnam, local and national healthcare systems should implement sensitization programs intended to increase the number of patients seeking antiviral therapy. This approach is anticipated to reduce anxiety while enhancing patients’ social function and mental health.

Key words: anxiety, depression, fatigue, quality of life, utility, Vietnam.
