Hepatitis C is a blood-borne virus, and so in this poster the Aboriginal communities in Victoria are represented as blood cells, holding hands to indicate community strength, and coming together to talk about hepatitis and injecting drug use. Hepatitis C is very much an issue for urban Aboriginal communities in Australia. By coming together we encourage conversations about the more marginalised people in the community who are affected by the virus, and, ultimately, help to prevent and treat this disease.
