Challenges

  • Demand is high for workshops and translated health information across many communities and languages.
  • There is lack of uptake from the settlement sector because of other more immediate chronic health conditions.
  • Topics of sex and drugs are stigmatized in many cultural communities.
  • The rapidly changing landscape of hepatitis C treatment requires ongoing translation and updates.
