Re-Living LiverWELL 

August 30, 2022

With our 30th Anniversary fast approaching this October, it’s an opportunity to take a trip down memory lane and revisit some of LiverWELL’s milestones.

This week we explore the evolution of our organisation and the many changes that have taken place over the past 30 years.

Our story began in 1992 with the first meetings of the Hepatitis C Support Group, which led to the establishment of the Hepatitis C Foundation of Victoria in 1993. Then in 1997, we became a founding member of the Hepatitis C Council of Australia, and changed our name to the Hepatitis C Council of Victoria, followed by Hepatitis C Victoria in 2007. With a shift to encompass hepatitis B as well, we then became Hepatitis Victoria in 2011.

Finally, in 2017 we transitioned to LiverWELL, reflecting a broader focus on liver health and an expansion of the communities we support.

We are proud of our journey from humble beginnings as the Hepatitis C Support Group to now standing as a peak body in promoting liver health to all Australians.

Be sure to check back in with us as we explore more of the history behind LiverWELL in the lead-up to our 30th Anniversary Celebration.

We acknowledge the traditional owners of the lands where we work - the lands of the Woi-Wurrung Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nations. We express our gratitude to them for their continued care and curation of these lands and waters. We pay our respects to Elders past and present.

LiverWELL observes and honours the Kulin Nation's intrinsic connection to land, sky and water, and the creator Bunjil. LiverWELL is committed to being led and informed by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders on bridging health outcomes for communities and improving liver health.
