ISBN 978 92 4 154905 9
This publication is only available online.
These are the first WHO guidelines for the prevention, care and treatment of persons living with chronic hepatitis B (CHB) infection, and complement similar recently published guidance by WHO on the prevention, care and treatment of infection due to the hepatitis C virus.
These guidelines are also intended for health-care providers who care for persons with CHB in these settings.
These recommendations provide opportunities to save lives, improve clinical outcomes of persons living with CHB, reduce hepatitis-B-virus incidence and transmission, and stigma due to disease, but they also pose practical challenges to policymakers and implementers in low- and middle-income countries.
