Hepatitis Awareness Week

Over 22,000 people in New South Wales have started treatment for, and been cured of, hepatitis C since 2016. While this is a great achievement for our community, it is estimated that a further 58,000 across the state are yet to seek treatment and cure. That number represents way more people than it would take to fill the Sydney Cricket Ground!

Thanks to groundbreaking medications, elimination of hepatitis C is now an achievable goal, but one which requires the combined efforts of government, the health sector, and community to be fully realised.

During Hepatitis Awareness Week (22 July – 28 July) and with World Hepatitis Day on 28 July, NSW Health and Hepatitis NSW are encouraging all people across the state who are living with hepatitis C, to take advantage of new easy-to-take and highly effective medications.

Have a look around our site for more information on hepatitis B and hepatitis C.
