On 28 July every year, we recognise World Hepatitis Day. The day aims to raise global awareness of viral hepatitis and encourage prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
This year on World’s Hepatitis Day, the PEACE Multicultural Services Team at Relationships Australia South Australia is making a virtual effort to help end stigma towards viral hepatitis. We want you to be part of this campaign to help create greater community awareness amongst Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) communities.
Let’s Talk Hep!
