In this forum participants will learn:

To RSVP please register online by Wednesday 9th October 2017.
More than 60% of people living with hepatitis B come from culturally and linguistically diverse communities. There are many misunderstandings about hepatitis B and without treatment, hepatitis B can cause liver cancer.
This workshop will give you:
- Knowledge and understanding of transmission, diagnosis and treatment of hepatitis B
- Knowledge on how to deliver appropriate health literate and culturally competent care to people affected by hepatitis B.
This workshop has been developed specifically for Water Well Project volunteers, but all are welcome.
