World Hepatitis Day Incentives: applications are now open!

May 17, 2022

For World Hepatitis Day 2022 LiverWELL are offering incentives of up to $1000 to assist organisations to provide virtual or face-to-face events and activities for their communities.

28 July is declared World Hepatitis Day (WHD) – one of nine urgent International Health days highlighted by the World Health Organisation and partners across the globe:

  • WHD highlights the urgent action needed by governments, health workers and the community to prevent deaths from viral hepatitis by eliminating hepatitis B and C by 2030.
  • Across the country and globally we need to continue to raise awareness and reduce the stigma and discrimination of the condition which affects close to 500,000 Australians.
  • We work with a range of partners to host events, including events for the general public, researchers, scientists and clinicians and “at-risk communities” where the prevalence of viral hepatitis is high.

Please keep the safety of your community in mind when submitting your application and be mindful of potentially needing to implement an alternative plan should restrictions change.

The maximum grant amount is $1000.

If you have any questions please get in touch with chloe@liverwell.org.au

Applications close 5pm on Friday 3 June 2022.

Thank you for your application and support of World Hepatitis Day!
