This chapter examines the epidemiology of hepatitis A, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C within the U.S. male population and within various samples of men-who-have-sex-with-men. Vaccine strategies for the prevention of hepatitis A and B are discussed, including relevant information about vaccine uptake among MSM. The chapter concludes with a review of promising strategies for resolving disparities in hepatitis infection (especially HBV) among MSM. These include both clinic and community-based interventions.
