What ASHM does in Hepatitis C

ASHM supports the health workforce in hepatitis C across Australia and New Zealand. 

We support our members and sector partners to generate knowledge and action in clinical management, research, education, policy and advocacy.​ As part of that commitment, we:

  • Develop national guidance on the testing and management of hepatitis C.
  • Developed and review the hepatitis C testing policy.
  • Run comprehensive training programs and provide ongoing support for primary care providers who manage and treat hepatitis C.
  • Manage the National HCV Training Standards Committee which sets the national clinical standards for hepatitis C training for primary care practitioners.​
  • We also offer a range of clinical training, education and resources to support all levels of the hepatitis C workforce, including material for non-medical professions, such as the police and emergency services.
