These Guidelines and their Evidence-Base have been developed by the Prisons Working Group of the Hepatitis C Subcommittee of the Ministerial Advisory Committee on AIDS, Sexual Health and Hepatitis (MACASHH) for the prevention, treatment and care of hepatitis C in custodial settings. The guiding principles for this document have been adopted from the National Hepatitis C Strategy 2005-2008.

Australian Health Ministers endorsed these Guidelines in July 2008. Corrective Services Ministers have also endorsed these Guidelines.
