Hepatitis, HIV/AIDS and Sexual Health Program

Our Hepatitis, HIV/AIDS and Sexual Health Program works with culturally and linguistically diverse communities across Queensland to improve access to hepatitis, HIV/AIDS, and sexual health information and services.

For 25 years ECCQ has been funded by Queensland Health to engage with migrant and refugee communities to provide information, community education and support services across Queensland.

Prevention, testing and awareness for hepatitis, HIV/AIDS and sexually transmitted infections

Our team of trained bilingual community health workers provide workshops in a community setting in different languages as well as provide information to increase awareness about prevention and testing.

Treatment and management for hepatitis

Our team provides individual support and vital information to people living with hepatitis and to their families and carers.

Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C are viruses that cause inflammation of the liver, and can cause long term damage including cirrhosis and liver cancer, often without any obvious symptoms.

FibroScan® is a quick, painless non-invasive assessment of potential damage to the liver. FibroScan® is a type of ultrasound and is safe for almost all people. It can replace liver biopsy which is a painful and longer procedure.

ECCQ provides a free FibroScan® service for people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds who have Hepatitis B or Hepatitis C.

Please see your GP for a referral to our service.
