Our vision – a world free of viral hepatitis
We are a not-for-profit charity started by the hepatitis community. We are a team of 16 paid staff and more than 30 casual staff, assisted by 18 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.
Our Mission statement
We work to improve the health and well-being of affected people and communities, and to prevent the transmission of viral hepatitis.

Excellence – we deliver quality and innovative services informed by evidence-based research, harm reduction principles and engagement with affected communities
Collaboration – we build strong partnerships with our stakeholders
