Applications are now open for organisations across the state to apply for the World Hepatitis Day Local Grants 2024 program to increase viral hepatitis awareness in support of World Hepatitis Day.

World Hepatitis Day Local Grants 2024

Hepatitis Queensland’s World Hepatitis Day Local Grants 2024 offer a platform for community engagement and action. Organisations are encouraged to use the funding to tailor initiatives that resonate with their local communities.

Whether it’s hosting a community barbeque, distributing health packs, developing educational resources, or organising a staff development session, there are countless avenues to raise awareness effectively.

Hepatitis Queensland is offering grants of $500 and $1000. Alternatively, organisations have the option to receive a $50 supermarket voucher. Supermarket vouchers used to purchase morning/afternoon tea items provide a simple yet impactful way to initiate conversations about hepatitis with clients or staff.

Hepatitis B and C have a significant impact on liver health of many Queenslanders. There are over 50,000 Queenslanders living with hepatitis B or C, many remain undiagnosed and are missing out on life-saving treatments.

Stigma and discrimination still prevent many people from seeking information and support. Hepatitis awareness raising activities can help encourage people to seek testing and treatment by supporting them to connect with their local health services.
