Hepatitis NSW is committed to raising hep B awareness. We provide grants of up to $4,000 to support community organisations to run health promotion activities with Aboriginal, Chinese or Korean communities.

These activities aim to:

  • raise awareness of hepatitis B transmission risks, prevention, and vaccination
  • raise awareness of hepatitis B testing, care, and treatment options
  • raise the profile of HNSW and the grant organisation and the relevant services they provide.
