Navigating the Future - Opportunities through engagement.

'Navigating the Future - Opportunities through engagement' is the theme of the 2016 National Health Promotion Conference coordinated by Hepatitis Australia.  The conference being held 19 - 20 May will explore the future health promotion response to viral hepatitis in Australia and look at how the sector workforce can maximise engagement and support people affected by viral hepatitis.

New medicines for hepatitis C now available.

A new generation of direct-acting antiviral medications are now available to Australians living with chronic hepatitis C. They are more effective, easier to take and have fewer side-effects than the older medications. The Australian Government has listed these new medicines on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS), ensuring they are accessible and affordable to all people with hepatitis C.  This is a leap forward in the management and treatment of hepatitis C and positions Australia as a world leader in publicly-funded access to these new, highly effective medicines.
