Why do we work with the Cambodian community to promote liver health?

The Cambodian community represent a priority population, experiencing a high prevalence of hepatitis B. Tepy Hoeung’s work as a community educator brings in-language workshops to the community, where she promotes the importance of liver health, the importance of getting tested and treated, as well as how to prevent hepatitis B with vaccinations.

Tepy’s work is well-received, with some quotes being:

‘Thank you for your contribution to SBS and our Cambodian community’ Dane Lao, SBS Khmer

‘Thank you for your great contribution to the health and well-being of our community’ Richard Lim, Councilor for Springvale Central Ward.

‘Thanks for your time and effort that you have put into delivering a very informative education for us’  Team Leader of the Cambodian Association of Victoria.
