It’s bloody hepatitis by Eric Seychell & Zac Joan from Brunswick Secondary College
This video was created in order to show the possible danger associated with doing drugs that could lead users to run the risk of getting Hepatitis as it can be transmitted through blood. Sharing needles is something that is common among drug users and is a serious potential health risk. Justthis week in Victoria, the first clean injection rooms were opened which will provide some progress to solving this issue although education is still needed in order to inform the masses about why it is such a key issue. Hopefully this video can help others learn about the dangers of sharing needles and how it relates to Hepatitis.

You cannot tell by looking at someone if they have Hep C. They may not have any visible symptoms or they may not even know that they have it. You friend could have it, you mum could have it, your teacher, your aunty or your doctor could have it. Hep C doesn’t discriminate and can affect anyone.

We need to stop the spread of hepatitis through the sharing of needles. People need to look after themselves at all times when using needles. The must wash their hand before and after injecting. They need to take when injecting in groups or when being injected by others. You should never recap or reuse needles and they must be disposed of properly. Look after yourself.
