The Viral Hepatitis Mapping Project: National Report 2017 is now available to download or order as a hard copy. Covering data from 2017, the report provides updated estimates broken down by geographic area, including:
- Chronic hepatitis B prevalence, immunisation coverage, monitoring and treatment uptake, including newly revised region-specific estimates of prevalence in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians
- Chronic hepatitis C prevalence and treatment uptake, with adjustments to account for people in correctional facilities
- Liver cancer incidence in relation to chronic hepatitis B and C prevalence and other risk factors
The Viral Hepatitis Mapping Project is a joint initiative between the WHO Collaborating Centre for Viral Hepatitis – The Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity and the Australasian Society for HIV, Viral Hepatitis and Sexual Health Medicine, funded by the Australian Government Department of Health.
