HEP Heroes Simon Clemence

Simon Clemence

Mayor of Mildura 

As Mayor of Mildura I support the eradication of hepatitis from our community.

Elected Mayor of Mildura in 2018, I have been on council since 2016. As a retired Mildura Police Commander,  I have worked on crime reduction initiatives, Ice education, family violence and improving Aboriginal youth training and employment Рand have a keen interest in helping improve access to services, and social justice.

It’s critical that we address viral hepatitis because it’s killing people at a rate higher than the road toll and is treatable.

Simon’s message to others…

Get a blood test. In most cases it’s free. You may have it and not even know, and if you leave it too long it can cause significant damage including cancer.
