Home About Us
About Hepatitis NSW

Our work – including this website – has a focus on being evidence-based. We are very careful to draw from established and credible information sources. One way of helping ensure this, is our collaboration with Australian experts. These include medical, research and public health experts.

Hepatitis NSW is a not-for-profit charity that was founded in 1992 by the hepatitis C community. We began as the Hepatitis C Council of NSW before changing our name to Hepatitis NSW, to reflect our work in both hepatitis B and C. Over the years we’ve grown from a group of passionate volunteers to an organisation with 19 paid office-based staff and more than 40 paid casual staff.

We work with and for communities affected by hepatitis B and C, primarily, and our main funder is the NSW Ministry of Health. We work to improve the health and wellbeing of our communities and have a long-standing reputation for our great partnership work, our professionalism, and our strong community mindset, including many staff with lived experience of hepatitis B and C.

Based in Surry Hills in Sydney, Hepatitis NSW is the peak body for all things hepatitis B and C in NSW and, as such, our work is state-wide. Our programs cover a range of areas including outreach testing, peer support, community engagement, resource development, work in the prison system, engagement with Aboriginal communities, a health promotion campaign, lived experience speakers, and much more.

Below are our organisation values which we strive to embody in all of our work.

    • Inclusiveness
