"I'm a Hepatitis Hero because stigma prevails when good people say nothing”.
I work at the Victorian Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation in the sexual health and blood borne viruses team. I previously worked in Redfern with people who inject drugs as an outreach worker at the Redfern Needle Syringe Program.
"I am a Hep Hero because I refuse to be ashamed about having injected drugs and having hepatitis C."
"I am a Hep Hero because everyone deserves to be treated with respect and receive the care that they need.”
"I am a Hep Hero because I am passionate about identifying and treating all”
"I am a hepatitis hero because I am inspired by the extraordinary HepHero team, and I want to be part of it, joining the action to make a difference for people living with viral hepatitis."
Painters and Dockers Band Member, The Transplants Band Member and Youth Community Worker.
I wanted to become a Hep Hero because I'm capable and confident to speak out. Therefore I feel I can help speak out for those who can't do so - who don't feel they have a voice.
I am a Hep Hero because I think that reducing stigma and discrimination against people with chronic illnesses such as viral hepatitis is essential in creating a happier and healthier community.
“I am a Hep Hero because there is an urgent need to raise awareness of hepatitis and its enormous impact on diverse communities in our multicultural society.”
