Peer Partnerships

Hepatitis NSW’s Peer Partnership Program works to make it as simple, as quick, and as barrier-free for people living with or at-risk of hep C to access hep C healthcare.

Our peer workers partner with healthcare workers (hep C nurses) to offer hep C testing, treatment, and healthcare at services that people are already visiting – methadone clinics, homelessness services, mental health services, needle and syringe program outlets, and residential rehabs.

Peer workers engage with people at these services and encourage them to see the on-site nurse about hep C. Peer workers also help clients to navigate the health system, to understand hep C, and to access the healthcare they need.

We see our peer workers as experts on living with hep C, and our partner nurses as experts on hep C healthcare. Together, peer workers and hep C nurses are helping hundreds of people across NSW access testing, treatment and healthcare for hep C.

Our awesome peer workers play a vital role in the efforts to eliminate hep C as a public health threat by 2028 and the Peer Partnership Program has been enormously successful in working towards this goal. Last year (2023) we achieved:

We strongly believe in making hep C testing and treatment as easy and simple as possible to access so that people have the opportunity to live healthier, to live better, and to live hep C free.
