Through national leadership, advocacy, and strong partnerships Hepatitis Australia works to effect action on hepatitis B and hepatitis C to meet the needs of all Australians. Hepatitis Australia values the role of people living with viral hepatitis in informing prevention, treatment and care programs. To support this, Hepatitis Australia participates on a number of national and international committees.
To assist in achieving our goals and to ensure a more responsive and proactive response to viral hepatitis, Hepatitis Australia will consistently seek improvements to national policies and the collection of, and access to research, surveillance and evaluation data to inform the best services for people living with viral hepatitis. Emphasis will be placed on ready access to testing and diagnosis trends and treatment access and effectiveness.
