Hepatitis Queensland (HQ) is a not-for-profit, community organisation dedicated to improving health and social outcomes for Queenslanders affected by, or at risk of viral hepatitis and liver disease.
Our vision is better liver health for all Queenslanders and our mission is to address stigma, improve the lives of those affected by viral hepatitis and meet emerging liver health challenges.
We do this through delivering projects that drive change in our communities, advocating through creating powerful, engaging content and resources, and empowering and educating the workforce to understand the challenges of living with viral hepatitis. We have ground-breaking outreach programs that are curing people living with hepatitis C and we have a ‘think outside of the box’ approach to breaking stigma and barriers associated with viral hepatitis. We work to change public policies, attitudes and behaviours related to viral hepatitis and liver health and we partner with governments, public and private sectors, and foster greater public awareness of the urgent issues surrounding viral hepatitis and liver health.
