The Multicultural HIV and Hepatitis Service in partnership with Healthy Cities Illawarra are offering a free hepatitis B workshop for CALD community workers
Hepatitis B is a virus that can cause liver damage and liver cancer. The majority of the 218 000 people with chronic hepatitis B were born overseas. About half don’t know they have it. Without appropriate care and treatment up to 25% of people with chronic hepatitis B will die from complication of cirrhosis or liver cancer.
Raising awareness in our communities is vital to address this serious health issue.
This workshop will:
- Improve your knowledge and understanding of hepatitis B
- Increase your awareness of the impact of hepatitis B
- Provide an opportunity to discuss your role in increasing awareness of hepatitis B among CALD communities
