This project aims to identify the health care and treatment needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living with chronic hepatitis B infection.
Interviews and surveys will be conducted with health care workers and people in urban and remote communities who are living with hepatitis B. Biomedical knowledge, cultural healthcare needs, traditional health beliefs and facilitators and barriers to treatment uptake will be investigated.
Project data will also inform the development of a larger nation-wide project and culturally appropriate resources and services for Indigenous Australians.
