About the National Hepatitis Infoline

The National Hepatitis Infoline is a confidential, free, low-threshold service that provides nationally coordinated and locally
delivered viral hepatitis information and support services.

Services provided include information, supportive brief interventions, peer support, referral and linkage, individual advocacy, and workforce support.

Officially launched at the Parliament House of Australia March 2023, the National Hepatitis Infoline is a key piece of infrastructure
in Australia’s national response, filling a critical service delivery gap by providing community-based support.

In the first 12 months of enhanced operation (1 July 2022 – 30 June 2023), the National Hepatitis Infoline has provided more than 10,000 occasions of service nationally.

The National Hepatitis Infoline is operating at capacity, and is responding to significant community demand and demand being generated by national activities.
