A review of the national and international peer-reviewed and grey literature was conducted to identify the barriers to, and enablers of, embedding the care and management of hepatitis B and hepatitis C in each of the six priority primary care settings, namely Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Services; Correctional facilities; Drug and alcohol treatment; Sexual health; Mental health; and General practices, particularly those in areas of high HBV prevalence areas and/or with high caseloads of patients living with viral hepatitis. The review included recommendations for enhancing viral hepatitis treatment, care and management in the context of New South Wales.
