on hepa B carriers

I am from the Philippines and reactive of HBSAG. i only learned about it when i was applying for abroad in 2001 and while having a medical exam. I was denied because i was found positive of this viral disease. I again undergone another test but still reactive but now my doctor advised me that i am a healthy carrier.  Even to this date i am still very healthy and i asked my doctor if i'm still fit for work and he responded "yes." Are advanced countries like the US and Canada denies people from other countries positive of Hepa B even though they are healthy carriers and is not very contagious? Don't you find this somewhat discriminatory on our part even though our doctors suggest that we are very much fit for work? Please help.

Agree with you, this is the reality.

Which country denied you a visa? Many people (especially from the Philippines) have asked questions about Hep B and visas. Your experience would help many: they will not apply to such countries in the future.
