|Abstract: ||Current custodial policies in Australasia are geared towards adopting a public health approach towards improving the quality of prison health services in line with community health standards. Although
hepatitis B vaccination is included as a core public health intervention for prisoners, little information is available regarding reliable and valid approaches
to quality measurement and evaluation of hepatitis B vaccination programs. This article proposes an indicator-based quality measurement approach and a matrix-based quality evaluation approach that focus on relationships between hepatitis B vaccination quality components and patients’ (prisoners) needs.|
