Find Hepatitis Clinics in Queensland
Dec 3, 2021
Hepatitis means liver (hepat-) inflammation (-itis). There are different types of Hepatitis (A, B, C, D, E) some of which can cause chronic liver disease, cirrhosis and liver cancer overtime if left untreated. Hepatitis C is most commonly seen in people who inject, because it is transmitted through blood-to-blood contact. Fortunately we have great treatments for Hep C and people at risk of infection should be encouraged to have regular health checks and seek treatment should they contract any type of Hepatitis. Our friends at Hepatitis Queensland have made it easy with “HEPnav” - an online service finder that allows people to find a Hepatitis treating doctor, pharmacy or liver clinic quickly and easily online. We think this is a great resource for people to know about. For more information about Hepatitis, check out the Hepatitis Queensland website or go to the HEPnav website to find out how to access hepatitis treatment options in your neighbourhood.
