National Hepatitis B and C Strategies released

June 14, 2023

Australia’s National Hepatitis B Strategy 2023-2030 and the National Hepatitis C Strategy 2023-2030 have been released for public consultation by the Department of Health and Aged Care.

We welcome these strategies, which reflect extensive input from stakeholder consultations and set the national policy framework to achieve the goal of eliminating viral hepatitis by 2030.

We are not currently on track to reach these elimination goals, so greater innovation and effort is needed…now!

Both Strategies were drafted in partnership with key stakeholders, following targeted consultations with jurisdictions, sector peak bodies, national community organisations including Hepatitis Australia and national research centres of excellence.

The Department has also consulted with the Blood Borne Viruses and Sexually Transmissible Infections Standing Committee (BBVSS) (a subcommittee of the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee), which includes state and territory governments and national peak body representation.

The Department sincerely thanks key partners for the feedback to develop these documents, and for continuing to drive this important work. This next round of feedback will help inform the development of the Strategies which are expected to be finalised in 2023.
