Abstract

This study aimed to provide an insight into the geographic distribution of Hepatitis A  in Turkey. Time series maps were created using Geographic Information Systems to introduce the temporal changes in the morbidity rates of Hepatitis A. The majority of clusters and hot spots were detected to be agglomerated in the Eastern Mediterranean and South-Eastern Anatolian Regions and Ceyhan, Asi and Southeast part of Firat-Dicle river basins in Turkey.
