Medicare Locals planning project
Primary health care services - especially general practice - have a critical role in achieving strategic outcomes in the areas of HIV, STIs and viral hepatitis. ASHM NSW has recently released a range of products designed to support Medicare Locals in NSW. The Medicare Local Planning documents include a statewide outline of key issues which compares impact across Medicare Locals, specific Medicare Local Issues papers, and Background papers on key disease issues.
National Priority Medicare Locals for Chronic Hepatitis B
Hepatitis B Mapping Project
is a joint initiative of ASHM and VIDRL, funded by the Australian Department of Health and Ageing. The project will produce a comprehensive understanding of chronic hepatitis B (CHB) in Australia using data that will help to inform awareness and intervention campaigns to suit the particular local needs of people living with CHB and those providing services to them.
