The screening of potential blood donors for the hepatitis B (HBV) and C (HCV) viruses has decreased the risk of transfusion-associated hepatitis.
There remains, however, a lack of consensus on a number of issues including methods for screening of blood donors and the management of donors found to have markers of hepatitis virus infection.
This document outlines the recommendations of a large group of interested individuals including blood transfusion service managers, primary care health authorities, epidemiologists, virologists, pathologists, gastro-enterologists and hepatologists drawn from both the public and the private sector.
