Hepatitis Week on 27 July to 2 August

Hepatetis WeekHepatitis Awareness Week NSW 2015 runs from 27 July to 2 August 2015. This year’s theme is Time to Act because with new treatments soon to become available we want to encourage people from priority populations for hepatitis B and hepatitis C to see now as the Time to Act on viral hepatitis.

Now is also the Time to Act on applying for community grants. Hepatitis NSW is providing grants of up to $2500 to NSW community organisations and health agencies to run activities that aim to raise awareness of viral hepatitis and hepatitis issues. This includes prevention of transmission, treatment, stigma and discrimination. This year we have a special focus on Hepatitis B, which in Australia disproportionally affects people from certain Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) backgrounds.

Hepatitis NSW especially encourages creative local approaches for activities that:

  • Are held or launched between 27 July and 2 August
  • Target priority populations including: Culturally and Linguistically Diverse communities; Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people; young people; people who inject drugs; and people who are or have been in prison
  • Respond to an identified local need
  • Increase awareness and understanding of viral hepatitis issues
