Three community groups, Community Response, HIV Ireland and UISCE, who work on behalf of people living in Ireland infected with hepatitis C, came together today to launch the first National Hepatitis C Awareness Week, which will take place from July 27th to 31st.
The three groups are encouraging those concerned about hepatitis C, and those working with people living with hepatitis C, to get involved in the awareness events planned for the week in Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Athlone and get informed about this often misunderstood disease. A ‘Big Green C’ will travel to these areas to educate the public and encourage those who may be at risk of contracting hepatitis C, or who may have the disease and be unaware of this, to get tested.
The community groups are also calling on service providers across the country who want to hold events to mark the week, supported by biopharmaceutical company AbbVie, to get in contact and sign up to participate. A specially created Events Pack is available for all service providers through the three community groups and for download at www.HepInfo.ie. Picture Andres Poveda
