Correctional Centre Project (People in Prison Resources)

Posted 01 January, 2007

We continue to provide information, support, resources, and education to people in prison and to the correctional centre workforce. Our current activities include: 

Telephone support

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.
