The Victorian hepatitis B strategy and hepatitis C strategy 2016-20

Victoria State Government, July 2016

The Victorian government has launched two separate strategies to eliminate viral hepatitis by 2030.

The Victorian hepatitis B strategy and Victorian hepatitis C strategy 2016-20 address the significant public health burden from hepatitis B and hepatitis C (viral hepatitis).

 

The strategies reflect the Government’s commitment to decreasing the public health burden in Victoria; increasing testing and treatment rates for the conditions; and eliminating the stigma and discrimination that can be experienced by people living with viral hepatitis.

A range of policies, legislation and regulations relate to the transmission, prevention and management of blood-borne viruses and sexually transmissible infections in Victoria.
