WA Hepatitis B Strategy – enabling environment

Promote rights and support access

Create supportive and enabling environments that promote the health and rights of those living with, or at risk of, hepatitis B, and support access to hepatitis B prevention, treatment, and care services.

Key focus will be placed on:

  • engaging with affected communities to identify and address barriers to meeting their needs
  • ensuring consumer participation at key forums
  • implementing strategies to reduce stigma and discrimination in healthcare settings
  • providing patients and consumers with information about their rights and responsibilities
  • maintaining existing partnerships, and developing new partnerships, to better meet the needs of people affected by hepatitis B
  • continuing to advocate for people in custodial settings to have access to the same means of prevention as those in the community, including health hardware such as sterile injecting equipment.
