·        Liver cancer is the fastest growing cause of cancer death in Australia. This is largely due to untreated viral hepatitis.

·        Currently only 2% of people living with hepatitis C get treatment in Australia – why is this?

Topics covered will include the social context, infection control and prevention and stigma and discrimination associated with hepatitis C.
