Peer-led education is an effective way to provide information and education to communities through people they can understand and relate to.
Hepatitis C treatment peer educators all have personal experience and current knowledge about hepatitis C and related issues. They prioritise assisting individuals in accessing treatment, but also provide information on other topics like prevention and living with hepatitis C.
Our peer educators will usually visit a host agency for two to three hours, providing information through informal one-on-one conversations. In some settings, peer educators may instead facilitate a group where they exchange information and experiences.
Peer educators visit each service weekly, fortnightly or a few times a month depending upon the service’s needs.
