Advice for Travellers

Hepatitis A is a highly infectious virus that can cause liver problems. The virus is usually spread by food or water contaminated by human faeces, or by direct contact with an infectious person, including sexual contact. Hepatitis A is rare in the UK, with most cases occurring in travellers who have recently visited countries where the disease is common.

You can reduce your risk of Hepatitis A virus by following advice on food and water hygiene and by ensuring good personal hygiene. Wash your hand after visiting the toilet, changing nappies and before preparing or eating food
