The issue of multi-country severe acute (non-viral) hepatitis in children is attracting interest and media coverage. Hepatitis Australia understands media approaches have been made to Member organisations for comment.

In collaboration with GESA, Hepatitis Australia has developed a Members Brief (download here) to inform responses to members of the community who may call (e.g. Hepatitis Infoline) or otherwise present seeking additional information. We provide this for your immediate use.

Accompanying the Members Brief is a GESA Media Statement available here:

In the event of media approaches, we recommend Member organisations provide a link to the GESA Media Statement and refer media requests for comment or additional information to [email protected]
