Strategies Announced for 2022-30: Victorian Sexual and Reproductive Health and Viral Hepatitis.

November 10, 2022

LiverWELL welcomes the release of the new hepatitis B and hepatitis C strategies from the Department of Health, as a part of the Victorian sexual and reproductive health and viral hepatitis strategy 2022–30. The plans were developed in consultation with people with lived experience and the sector, and provide a clear roadmap to achieve viral hepatitis elimination by 2030. The strategy is supported by the system enabler plan which includes:

  • Reducing stigma, racism and discrimination
  • Building workforce capacity
  • Fostering partnerships and collaboration
  • Supporting data and research

LiverWELL CEO Russell Shewan said “I am delighted the Department of Health have released these new strategies. Whilst the journey to achieve Hepatitis B & C will be challenging, we are confident that everyone is committed to this goal. LiverWELL looks forward to continuing our work with people with lived experience, the Department of health, researchers, clinicians, and the community to deliver the strategy – moving to the elimination of viral hepatitis.”
