Guidlines for the screening, care and treatment of the persons with hepatitis C infection

World Health Organization


These are the fist guidelines dealing with hepatitis C treatment produced by the World Health Organization (WHO) and complement existing guidance on the prevention of transmission of bloodborne viruses, including HCV. They are intended for policy-makers, government offiials, and others working in low- and middleincome countries who are developing programmes for the screening, care and treatment of persons with HCV infection. These guidelines serve as a framework that can allow the expansion of clinical services to patients with HCV infection, as they provide key recommendations in these areas and discuss considerations for implementation.
