Hepatitis NSW

Hepatitis NSW – we’re working towards a world free of viral hepatitis

Hepatitis NSW is a not-for-profit charity started by the hepatitis community. We are a team of 19 paid staff assisted by 30-40 committed volunteers.

We provide information, support, referral and advocacy for people affected by viral hepatitis in NSW. We also provide workforce development and education services both to prevent the transmission of viral hepatitis and to improve services for those affected by it.

We strive to be representative of people affected by viral hepatitis and work actively in partnership with other organisations and with the affected communities themselves to bring about improvements in quality of life, information, support and treatment, and to prevent hepatitis B and C transmission.

 

Hepatitis NSW’s vision
