Sexual health and hepatitis C health promotion targeting Aboriginal people

Western Sydney

The Deadly Liver Mob (DLM) incorporates a peer driven intervention to encourage people to be educated about BBV and then recruit and educate their peers to the DLM. DLM is conducted by the harm reduction and sexual health services (within Local Health Districts) in the Western Sydney area. The aims of the evaluation are to examine the long term translation, uptake and sustainability of sexual health service delivery associated with the DLM project and identify long term prevention, care and treatment pathways for Aboriginal people involved.
