NSW Going Viral

NSW Going Viral

B_RAF_David_Daniel003

 

Like anyone else, young people can expose themselves to hep C – where equipment is shared or reused when injecting drugs or steroids, or through unsterile tattooing or piercing.

 

What was the NSW Going Viral project?

NSW Going Viral was a 3-part project aimed at preventing new hep C infections among young people. It involved:

1. A one-day intensive hepatitis workshop

2. Training and site visits to experience first-hand local hepatitis C prevention services and Syringe Program services. Check out our Amazing Race video here!

3. Funding and support with planning  hepatitis prevention projects to run with clients.

Funding for NSW Going Viral ceased in June 2016. NSW Going Viral has been superseded by the Youth at Risk program which aims to prevent young people from initiating into injecting drug use. Free one-day training workshops are available in NSW to those who work with young people at risk of injecting. Find out more here about the Youth at Risk project.
