The Victorian Hepatitis B Alliance (VHBA) is an independent, multi-disciplinary community of practice that aims to build momentum behind the Victorian response to hepatitis B.
Who we are
VHBA formed in 2008. We consist of both individual members and organisational representatives, including multicultural and Indigenous health and social services, clinical service providers, researchers, community health services and individuals with an interest in hepatitis B.
What we do
The multi-disciplinary nature of VHBA creates a unique opportunity for networking and exchange of information and expertise. The VHBA Strategic Directions guide our work which includes:
- policy advocacy
- building community leadership
- workforce development.
VHBA has three sub-committees:
- Spotlight Sub-committee: organises an annual training and information event for community and health workers, held in July
- Advocacy Sub-committee: responds to advocacy issues related to the effective delivery of the Victorian Hepatitis B Strategy
- Building Community Leadership Sub-committee: works to increase the involvement of affected communities
