The MHAHS and Art Resistance, are teaming up once again for a hepatitis C video series. Aimed at supporting Hepatitis Awareness Week in July this year, the new venture is part of the broader NSW Health Viral Hepatitis Communication Strategy, and will include stories of people from diverse cultural backgrounds who have undergone hepatitis C treatment.

The joint venture will be the team’s first outing since co-producing the highly successful video on HIV and hepatitis C Everybody’s Business almost 10 years ago.

Everybody’s Business was a very important HIV and hepatitis C education resource in Australia, particularly for culturally diverse communities, according to Denise Voros.

Everybody’s Business was a staple education resource for community HIV and hepatitis C workers across much of Australia in the early 2000s. The videos were well received and were praised for their clarity, simplicity, cultural appropriateness and above all for their humour and liveliness. The resource was adaptable that made it easy for people to discuss what is an otherwise difficult topic,” said Ms Voros.

Produced in English, Indonesian, Khmer, Somali, Thai, Arabic, Spanish, Chinese and Vietnamese languages, the innovative resource won the Government Category of the 1999 Ethnic Affairs Multicultural Marketing Award.

Here is hoping for another memorable outing.
