The major events this quarter were the HARP Forum and the 2019 Rugby League Knockout on the Central Coast. The Rugby League Knockout is the largest Aboriginal event in the NSW annual calendar with more than 20,000 people in attendance over the three days. Hepatitis NSW along with SWOP and ACON interacted with hundreds of people over these three days providing important information about hepatitis B and C, STIs and HIV.
Hepatitis NSW had significant prominence at the 2019 HARP Forum. Hepatitis NSW Aboriginal Project Officer and Programs Manager won people choice for their Close the Gap oral poster presentation. Hepatitis B Project Officers gave a startling oral presentation on their hepatitis B community education project. Community Support Coordinator, Community Support Project Officer and the Programs Manager were on the 'nothing about us, without us' panel which provided an opportunity to talk about Hepatitis NSW peer programs.
