The guidance has been developed to aid the public health management of hepatitis A infection which aims to reduce the occurrence of secondary infections and to prevent and control outbreaks.
The guidance has been developed based on a review of the current epidemiology of hepatitis A in England and a review of the literature on the efficacy of human normal immunoglobulin (HNIG) and hepatitis A vaccine for post-exposure prophylaxis. This guidance updates the 2009 Guidance for the Prevention and Control of Hepatitis A Infection.
