Hepatitis NSW is committed to raising hep B awareness. We are providing grants of up to $4,000 to support community organisations to run health promotion activities with Aboriginal, Chinese or Korean communities.
These activities will:
- raise awareness of hepatitis B transmission risks, prevention, and vaccination
- raise awareness of hepatitis B testing, care, and treatment options
- raise the profile of HNSW and the grant organisation and the relevant services they provide.
The following Korean education grants have been approved for the 2016/2017 financial year.
