Multicultural Health Service and HIV and Related Programs (HARP) Unit in partnership with Hepatitis NSW present Research to Practice Forum Partnering with Communities on Hepatitis B


Most people living with Hepatitis B in NSW are born overseas.  Those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds are likely to experience challenges in accessing health care including language and cultural barriers, stigma associated with Hepatitis B, limited knowledge of services and western medical understandings of the condition.  This often leads to poorer health outcomes.  Come and hear about the latest research around engaging with culturally and linguistically diverse communities and innovative ways health care workers have successfully achieved this.  The forum also provides an opportunity to network with others and explore future collaborations.
