We hear from Jarrod McMaugh, a health professional who works as a pharmacist in the north of Melbourne. Jarrod is also a board member at Hepatitis Victoria.
In his day to day Jarrod is treating patients with opioid replacement therapy like methadone or suboxone. Among other disparities, hepatitis C and liver health are common concerns for this population.
“There’s no reason to treat any person different. Stigma has a huge impact on people’s health outcomes”, he says.
We welcome people from all cultures, nationalities and religions. Being inclusive and providing equitable services is our commitment.
