Over two-thirds of people in Australia living with Chronic Hepatitis B (CHB) are born overseas.
BBVs can have a dramatic impact on CALD patients’ health outcomes and quality of life.
GPs, nurses, primary care providers & community workers are well positioned to address health inequality by identifying patients of refugee background (asylum seekers, humanitarian arrivals & their families) and those born overseas, to offer the care needed to detect, prevent & manage HBV.
