Hepatitis SA is marking World Hepatitis Day 2022 with our annual WHD Quiz - this year on Kids & Hepatitis, a micro-elimination campaign in the Riverland and mini activities for targeted audiences.

Kids & Hepatitis - Learn more and WIN a stay at the Oval.

Fancy a night at the unique Oval Hotel in Adelaide? Learn more about how hepatitis affects children and enter the draw for a $500 voucher to use for accommodation or dining at this iconic boutique hotel in the heart of Adelaide.

The current worldwide outbreak of a mystery hepatitis in children has put the lens on how hepatitis affects children. What are the common ways children get hepatitis? Can children with hepatitis be treated? Knowing how the common types of viral hepatitis affect children and how to protect them against infection is an important part of the strategy to eliminate viral hepatitis. Do the Kids & Hepatitis Quiz and you could be experiencing the luxury of the Oval.

The quiz opens on 28 July and closes on 31 August. On World Hepatitis Day, go to and get on the quiz.


LiverBetterLife Riverland Roadshow

LiverBetterLife Riverland Roadshow is a project to introduce new hepatitis C rapid testing technology to rural and regional communities, together with point of care referrals for treatment for those returning positive results. Lessons learnt from this project will inform future work to improve access to testing and treatment for rural and regional communities. There will be several information sessions for GPs in the week leading up to World Hepatitis Day, with a dinner on 28 July for GPs and pharmacists, to mark the Day. This will be followed by rapid testing for the community, at pharmacies in Loxton, Berri, Renmark and Barmera from 9 - 12 August.

As part of the awareness raising campaign, there will also be a lucky draw for the wider Riverland community. The winner will get a $500 voucher for a stay at Pike River Luxury Villas. The quiz is currently open, with the prize drawn on 15 August. More information on the Roadshow and lucky draw at


Hepatitis C Rapid Testing Video

Health, community and peer workers can now take quick and easy hepatitis C testing to the community. The new rapid tests are just a finger prick with a tiny droplet of blood processed in a portable machine that delivers accurate results in an hour. This rapid testing demonstration video was recorded by Hepatitis SA Hep C Peer Coordinator, Lisa Carter, as a training tool, as well as an information resource for people thinking of getting tested. The video can be viewed on Hepatitis SA's YouTube channel from 12 noon on 28 July. For more information call 1800 437 222.
