Youth at Risk of Hep C

Youth at Risk of Hep C

Youth at Risk of Hep C

Youth workers have been identified as a group that could provide vital harm reduction information for young people at risk of injecting. However, many youth workers feel reluctant to raise the issue because of a lack of accurate and up to date knowledge on hepatitis c and other harm reduction services. Many are also unsure of how to raise the issue of injecting drug use with young people.

“Young injectors and young people at risk of injecting have low levels of knowledge not only about hepatitis C, but also the existence of and supports available at harm reduction services, including NSPs. They also do not see hepatitis C as relevant to them.” (Bryant et. Al. p1, 2012)

What Was The Youth At Risk Program?

The Youth at Risk training was a one-day workshop that aimed to increase the knowledge and confidence of youth workers about hepatitis C and other blood borne viruses so they can effectively engage with young people who may be exposed to injecting drug use.
