Steven’s stigma story

November 20, 2020

Steven talks about his lived experience of acquiring hepatitis C through the healthcare system and successfully undergoing interferon treatment some years later. In the past, this was a time in his life that he preferred not to talk about and forget it happened.

Steven reflects on the stigmatisations he witnessed and felt in his professional and personal life, as well as his process of overcoming it.

His message to the community is to reserve judgement, have an open mind, demonstrate compassion, and to listen to each other’s stories.
