Correctional Centre Project (Prisoner Resources)

Posted 01 January, 2007

We continue to provide information, support, resources, and education to Prisoners and to the Correctional Centre workforce. Our current activities include: 

Telephone support

Prisoners 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 prisoner 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.
