New Resource Poster – Don’t Let Hep C Make Ya Weak
This poster “Don’t Let Hep C Make Ya Weak” was developed as part of a project by Hepatitis Queensland, Australia. The purpose is to increase awareness, encourage testing, treatment and prevent infections of Hepatitis C. This resource has been designed specifically for, and focus-tested with, Indigenous communities. It is colourful and informative, with easy-to-understand language that gives information and support contacts for Murri’s whose lives are affected by hepatitis C.

Building Awareness in Your Communities with Art
Viral hepatitis is the silent epidemic in Indigenous communities; one of the four priority groups in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Blood Borne Viruses’ and Sexually Transmissible Infections Strategy 2010-2013. Viral hepatitis is not much spoken about, and without speaking about it information is not passed on in communities. Hepatitis Queensland has an award winning program that is delivered through Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health services in Queensland. The program is culturally appropriate and relevant to viral hepatitis in the community; it engages participants in the art of painting with sand and other materials. In a 3 hour program participants gain knowledge of hepatitis A, B & C and are encouraged to seek support, testing and treatment. The program is delivered by Nicky Newley-Guivarra, a trained artist whose knowledge in the area of viral hepatitis comes from personal experience of treatment and recovery. Nicky also gives her personal story during the workshop, providing a role model that motivates people to find their own courage to seek testing and to talk about treatment.
