…working together to promote understanding


C-een & Heard offers a new approach to hepatitis C education. It is a service providing speakers who share their personal experiences of hepatitis C with audiences of health care or other workers, as well as community and/or client groups.


Our aim is to increase understanding and awareness of hepatitis C, dispel myths and misconceptions, and reduce hepatitis C related stigma and discrimination. We strongly encourage the inclusion of a C-een & Heard speaker in longer education sessions to add an important client perspective.


C-een & Heard has proved to be a valuable tool for many health and welfare services.



Inviting a speaker to your agency or organisation provides an opportunity to:


  • Hear first hand personal experiences of people living with hepatitis C.
  • Challenge the myths and stereotypes about hepatitis C.
  • Address discriminatory attitudes in the workplace and elsewhere.
  • Provide a holistic view of health (medical, social, personal).
  • Gain insight into the psychosocial issues associated with hepatitis C.
  • Enhance existing training & education initiatives with personal perspectives.
