The Hepatitis Infoline offers free information, support and referrals across NSW. It’s a confidential and non-judgemental call from landlines and from prisons.

“I felt a lot better after talking to someone. There aren’t that many people to talk to about hep C so this was great, actually.”

Why Call the Hepatitis Infoline?

 

The Hepatitis Infoline is staffed by people who are experienced and know a lot about hep B and C, which means they’re able to give you the support and information you need.

Our free and confidential Hepatitis Infoline is for people who live in NSW and:

  • are thinking about getting tested for hep B or C
  • have questions about treatment for hep C
  • are living with hepatitis B or C
  • know someone affected by hep B or C
  • may have hep B or C, but aren’t sure about what to do next
  • would like more information about how to prevent or treat hepatitis B or C
  • are facing discrimination because of a hep B or C diagnosis

Whether you, or someone you know, has been recently diagnosed, or you’d like to share your hep B or C experience with someone who understands, we welcome your call today.
