C-een & Heard speakers are invited to give talks to different groups of people. Speakers talk about their experience of living with hep B or C and how stigma and discrimination affected them. C & H speakers are annually trained on public speaking. C & H speakers give hep B and C a face.
C & H speakers have addressed their stories to healthcare workers and the general public at community events. C&H speakers have been invited by Liver Clinics like RPA. We have worked with the following organisations: Come In Youth Resource Centre, Aboriginal Medical Service Western Sydney, Substance.org, Youth off the streets, Youth Health AOD Community, Marrin Weejali Aboriginal Corporation, HARP Health Promotion Team, ASHM, Red Cross, CNS | Needle and Syringe Program, Prince Henry Community Centre, Little Bay and Kingswood High School.
C& H speaker sessions have shown that they are effective as audiences can put a face to hep C. Our feedback shows that C&H speakers give more depth to an education session. We have speakers who are trained in public speaking skills and annual refresher courses are organised for our C&H staff to keep them up to date with up to date treatment developments.
