LiverWELL · An Interview with Dr Adrian Farrugia on Hepatitis C impediments to treatment

We talk to Dr Adrian Farrugia from the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society, La Trobe University.

Adrian’s research focuses on opioid overdose and take-home naloxone, experiences of hepatitis C treatment, and young people’s drug consumption and drug education.
