Jarrod’s stigma story

July 6, 2018

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.
