Here you’ll find all of the resources we produce that are useful for people who work in the viral hepatitis and harm reduction sectors.
Youth and Health Worker Support Kit
This kit is a resource for workers wishing to address the risks, consequences and choices young people (14 – 25) face regarding body art, injecting drug use and viral hepatitis, especially hepatitis C.
Increasingly, young people are engaging in unsterile home body art and placing themselves at risk of contracting blood borne viruses. Additionally, due to the taboos and stigma surrounding drug use, especially in relation to injecting, young people often don’t have access to the information and support services that could help to minimise the risk of contracting a blood borne virus.
This resource is designed to assist youth and health workers to engage in conversations about the choices young people can make around body art and/or drug use and the associated risks and consequences of these activities.
Hepatitis NSW takes a harm reduction approach when educating young people in their decisions about body art and drug use.
Hepatitis ABC Game
This game is an interactive boardgame that uses a set of images on cards to represent the differences between hepatitis A, B and C in terms of:
- where does the virus live?
- how do you get the virus?
- what does the virus do?
- how can you stay safe?
This is a low-literacy resource suitable for use with adult learners, young people (14-24) and people who speak only a little English.
