2016 National Hepatitis Health Promotion Conference

2016 National Hepatitis Health Promotion Conference: Navigating the Future – Opportunities through Engagement. 19 – 20 May 2016

Hepatitis Australia is pleased to invite you to Melbourne for the 2016 National Hepatitis Health Promotion Conference to be held at Rydges Melbourne hotel on 19 - 20 May. The conference will bring together a diverse range of community and health sector workers, researchers and speakers from across Australia.  

The theme for the 2016 conference is ‘Navigating the Future – Opportunities through Engagement’. The conference 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.

 The primary aim of the National Hepatitis Health Promotion Conference is to support the community-based viral hepatitis sector workforce to increase their knowledge and skills in order to effectively reach and engage with identified priority populations, and to plan, implement and evaluate successful viral hepatitis health promotion projects.

 We hope that the conference will provide delegates with an experience that enhances and inspires their work in the viral hepatitis health promotion sector. 
Registration fee for the
2-day conference is $250.00. Conference registrations have now closed.

 Hepatitis Australia has partnered with Cancer Council Victoria and the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society to deliver a hepatitis B workshop titled New insights into hepatitis B: Understanding the social and cultural experiences of people affected by hepatitis B. This half-day workshop will be held at Rydges Melbourne between 12 noon and 5pm on 18 May 2016.  Workshop registration is free to delegates of the National Hepatitis Health Promotion Conference however a charge of $30 applies to those wishing to attend the workshop and not the conference. Numbers for the workshop are limited to 50 people only, so book early to ensure your attendance.
