Statement of Marriage Equality

Hepatitis Australia offers our support to the LGBTI+ community during the current national conversation and postal survey on marriage equality and we strongly support the call for a measured and respectful discussion about this important human rights issue.

We recognise that any type of structural discrimination causes immense distress within affected communities and can result in adverse mental and physical health outcomes for individuals.

As an organisation, we support policy and action which promotes the health & well-being of all individuals, celebrates diversity, and helps to create an inclusive society.

We encourage our community members to reach out for support if needed, and offer ACON’s practical ‘Staying Strong Tips’ below:
