HepatitisWA proudly support the Hepatitis Australia National Campaign for 2018 ‘Why Miss Out’
In 2016 Australia became a world leader in access to new treatments to cure hepatitis C, which is available under the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) via prescription by your GP or specialist. Access to vaccinations to prevent hepatitis B have been affordable for some time and treatment for hepatitis B is available through the PBS. This presents a golden opportunity for many thousands of Australians.
Despite having such good access to testing, vaccinations and treatment many people in Australia are still missing out on the care they need. Thousands still have not been tested and are unaware they have hepatitis B or hepatitis C. Many who may have been diagnosed years ago are not accessing their doctor to monitor how hepatitis B is effecting their liver health and many are unaware they could be cured of hepatitis C.
