Your mob, my mob, our mob



Your mob, My mob, Our mob was  a pilot peer education program that aimed to prevent the spread of blood borne viruses (BBVs) in Aboriginal communities across New South Wales.

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

Young people receive certificates of participation and present their art to the community.

Your mob, My mob, Our mob was a positive way to share information, empower young people and ensure that young Aboriginal people were engaged with local community controlled health services about hepatitis C.

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