We’re currently running a campaign for South Sudanese Australians to encourage them to get tested for hepatitis B.

Dr Dut is encouraging everyone from the South Sudanese community to talk to their doctor and get tested for hepatitis B

As many as one in 18 South Sudanese Australians have hepatitis B. If left untreated, one in four of these people will develop liver cancer. The good news is that hepatitis B can be treated if it’s found early.
