Blood Borne Viruses
This report presents the findings of the post-campaign stage of the evaluation.
The Aboriginal Health and Medical Research Council (AH&MRC) was commissioned by NSW Health to implement a state-wide Hep C Campaign involving ‘THE LAST KINECTION’. AH&MRC believes this is a great opportunity to open a dialogue with Aboriginal communities about Hep C and to explore and gain knowledge, challenge shame and stigma and improve Aboriginal peoples access to appropriate services and information.

This is a resource for Aboriginal Communities in NSW about hepatitis C or ‘hep C’.
This booklet was developed with funding provided from NSW Health.
This print run was supported by The Hepatitis C Council of NSW.
Sexually Transmissible Infections (STIs) and Blood Borne Infections (BBIs) are a significant problem in NSW. They particularly affect people who are young, marginalised or who have limited access to health services. These factors along with other issues discussed in this manual contribute to the higher burden of ill health experienced by Aboriginal people as a consequence of STIs and BBIs.
