Correctional Centre Project (People in Prison Resources)
We continue to provide information, support, resources, and education to people in prison and to the correctional centre workforce. Our current activities include:
People in prison can call Hepatitis Queensland for a free, confidential 10-minute conversation on ARUNTA No 12 and request a hepatitis information pack which includes a deck of playing cards. The playing cards include important health messages about looking after your liver and are full of information about hepatitis B and C. These cards also include information about support services available once a person in prison has been released.
Playing cards animation series
Based on the success of our playing cards we created a three-part animation series. These short 30 second videos include information about the transmission of hepatitis C, how to get tested for hepatitis C in Correctional Centres and how easy the new hepatitis C treatments are.
