Background: The epidemiology of Helicobacter pylori infection is poorly understood. Methods: All relevant English publications from 2000 to 2017 cited by PubMed and Scopus were retrieved using comprehensive combinations of keywords. The overall prevalence of H. pylori was estimated using both random effect and fixed effect meta‐analyses, and presented as prevalence rate (% and 95% CI). The analyses were extended by separation into gender and age groups.
