World Health Organization, March 2015
These are the first World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines for the prevention, care and treatment of persons living with Chronic Hepatitis B (CHB) infection. They are intended for country programme managers to help plan the development and scale up of hepatitis B prevention, care and treatment and also for healthcare providers who care for persons infected with hepatitis B virus (HBV). The special needs of specific populations, such as people co-infected with HIV, children and adolescents, and pregnant women are also considered.
