A new campaign is encouraging members of Victoria’s Chinese, Thai and Filipino communities to get tested for hepatitis B and C to prevent liver cancer.
Many people living with hepatitis B and C are unaware they have the virus. If left untreated, hepatitis can lead to liver damage or liver cancer.
Cancer Council Victoria, in partnership with the Centre for Culture, Ethnicity and Health and St Vincent’s Hospital have created new materials to encourage people to get tested for hepatitis B and C and seek treatment and care.

The posters are available to order from the Cancer Council Victoria website.
The Chinese and Thai posters are bilingual.
North Western Melbourne Primary Health Network contributed to the funding of this campaign.
