Description:
Viral haemorrhagic fever agents (VHFs) are zoonotic diseases that may cause a haemorrhagic syndrome in humans. Of particular concern are those that have demonstrated the potential for person-to-person spread and they are the focus of this document. These are: Ebola, Marburg, Lassa fever and other arenaviruses, and Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever (CCHF). Guidelines on the management of VHFs in Ireland were first published in 2002. This document provides updated guidance on the management of VHFs in Ireland, incorporating changes internationally and in Ireland that have affected the way in which VHFs will be managed in Ireland in the future.
