Hepatitis A is a liver disease caused by the hepatitis A virus.
The virus is primarily spread when an uninfected (and unvaccinated) person ingests food or water that is contaminated with the faeces of an infected person.
The disease is closely associated with unsafe water, inadequate sanitation and poor personal hygiene.
Hepatitis A occurs sporadically and in epidemics worldwide, with a tendency for cyclic recurrences.
The hepatitis A virus is one of the most frequent causes of foodborne infection.
The disease can lead to significant economic and social consequences in communities. It can take weeks or months for people recovering from the illness to return to work, school or daily life.
