Youth at Risk

Pages tagged Education

Youth at Risk

  “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) 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.   What is the Youth at Risk Program? The Youth at Risk training is a one-day workshop that aims 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. What does the Youth at Risk training include? Understand the... Read more.

Prevention

Hep C can only be passed on when blood containing hep C enters the bloodstream of another person. Avoiding blood-to-blood contact is the best way to prevent the transmission of hep C.   Always use your own equipment when you’re drugs or steroids If you inject drugs (ice, heroin etc) or if you inject steroids (like testosterone) then you can help prevent hepatitis C transmission by always using your own sterile needles and syringes and not sharing anything used in the injecting process such as alcohol swabs, spoons, tourniquets, vials (the bottles or bladders that some steroids come in). People often inject together and help each other to inject. If you’re helping someone it’s important to remember that your hands can have blood on them that you can’t see. Wear gloves or work out ways to help that mean you don’t touch anything the other person is using to inject. Check out the NSW NSP Map to find out where you can get sterile injecting equipment, or go to the AIVL NSPDirectory   Get your tattoos and piercings done by... Read more.

Education Resources

Here you’ll find all of the resources we produce that are useful for people who work in the viral hepatitis and harm reduction sectors.   Youth and Health Worker Support Kit This kit is a resource for workers wishing to address the risks, consequences and choices young people (14 – 25) face regarding body art, injecting drug use and viral hepatitis, especially hepatitis C. Increasingly, young people are engaging in unsterile home body art and placing themselves at risk of contracting blood borne viruses. Additionally, due to the taboos and stigma surrounding drug use, especially in relation to injecting, young people often don’t have access to the information and support services that could help to minimise the risk of contracting a blood borne virus. This resource is designed to assist youth and health workers to engage in conversations about the choices young people can make around body art and/or drug use and the associated risks and consequences of these activities. Hepatitis NSW takes a harm reduction approach when educating young people in their decisions about body art and drug use.... Read more.

NSW Going Viral

  Like anyone else, young people can  themselves to hep C – where equipment is shared or reused when injecting drugs or steroids, or through unsterile tattooing or piercing.   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. The projects and resources that resulted from the local grants will be displayed here shortly. 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 or contact Karina at info@hep.org.au or call 02  8217 7714.
