Your mob, my mob, our mob

 

Overview

Your mob, my mob, our mob is a pilot peer education program that aims to prevent the spread of blood borne viruses (BBVs) in Aboriginal communities across New South Wales.

The program uses street art as a way to engage young Aboriginal people aged between 14-25 years, particularly those at risk of contracting a BBV and includes:

On the final day, the young people receive certificates of participation and present their art to the community.

Your mob, my mob, our mob is a positive way to share information, empower young people and ensure that young Aboriginal people are engaged with local community controlled health services about hepatitis C.

The Aboriginal Health and Medical Research Council is coordinating the program in partnership with Hepatitis NSW, Aboriginal community controlled health services and juvenile detention centres.
