An estimated 30% of people with viral hepatitis in Australia are undiagnosed, yet hepatitis related liver disease kills 6 Victorians a week, a number surpassing the average number of road toll deaths*.

Stigma and discrimination are among the main causes people living with viral hepatitis don’t seek treatment. Hepatitis Victoria is holding a forum at Melbourne Town Hall that will explore the complexities and consequences of hepatitis related stigma and discrimination. 

You will hear from experts in health prevention, human rights and discrimination law, as well as people living with hepatitis B and hepatitis C who will share their experiences.

Hepatitis Victoria invites you to a Forum on Stigma and Discrimination.

Speakers include:
Hepatitis Victoria’s HEPSpeakers (people with lived experience of viral hepatitis).
Dr Bruce Bolam, Chief Preventative Health Officer, Department of Health and Human Services 
Karen Cusack, Health Complaints Commissioner.
Justine Vaisutis, Head of Education & Engagement, Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission
Deborah Randa, Solicitor and Community Legal Education Coordinator, Disability Discrimination Legal Service.
