  7. 16. <ul><li>Despite the long-standing existence of unambiguous recommendations for risk group vaccination , hepatitis B vaccination coverage remains low in most risk groups in most high-income countries. This low coverage may be attributed to a lack of perceived risk of hepatitis B and the absence of appropriate health care programmes targeting hepatitis B monitoring and vaccination for certain risk groups, particularly sex workers, injecting drug users, and prisoners… The VHPB also recognises that new strategies will have to be developed and implemented . </li></ul><ul><li>Hepatitis B vaccination: how to reach risk groups.
