The Multicultural HIV and Hepatitis Service (MHAHS) is seeking your support to remind our communities of the importance of taking care of their health by testing for hepatitis B.
Chronic hepatitis B is a major cause of serious liver disease and liver cancer. As effective treatments are now available, testing is vital. Of the estimated 83 812 people in NSW living with chronic hepatitis B, many were born overseas.
The state-wide Are you living with hepatitis B? Find out. Get tested campaign encourages people from priority culturally and linguistically diverse communities to ask their doctor for a hepatitis B test.
A range of multilingual print and digital campaign resources are available in English for cross-cultural use, English tailored for African communities, Arabic, Chinese (Simplified), Korean and Vietnamese.
Please find attached the campaign Multilingual Resource Toolkit, which includes the campaign resources, download links, and guidelines for promoting hepatitis B testing on your social media platforms.
Free copies of the campaign printed resources can be ordered by completing the Resource Order Form.
We’re also pleased to provide free, hepatitis B community education sessions online. These are delivered in language by our trained cultural support workers.
If you have any questions about the campaign or would like to organise an education session, please contact Natali Smud on 9515 1234 or email [email protected]
