Our framework is centered in lived experience, robust evidence, social justice, cultural safety and trauma-informed practices. People living with hepatitis B are the experts in their own experiences and are change makers. Our approach is utilising the multi-faceted intersectional experiences, strengths and resilience of affected communities.
Our work focuses on:
We will capture and convey the needs of the hepatitis B-affected community to enable effective advocacy for them. We will also guide policies in all areas that impact the affected community (including within clinical, scientific, and governmental sectors).
Research And Training
We will work with researchers to design and execute research that benefits the affected community. We will also develop training programs for both sector and community to enable effective conversations between all parties.
We will offer a "one-stop shop" for parties seeking to engage the hepatitis B affected community: identification of individuals, training, briefing, organising, and otherwise facilitating the interactions between affected community and consultees in an efficient, culturally safe, and representative manner.
We will undertake peer-led community engagement and support activities with sector collaboration. This will include developing community networks and effective partnerships in the hepatitis B space.
