BBV English

Our Program works with migrants and refugees across Queensland to improve access to Hepatitis, HIV and STI information, testing and treatment services.

Our Program is funded by Queensland Health. All our services and resources are provided free of charge to all migrants and refugees including people without a Medicare card and to service providers who work with those people.

Community education and information provision

Our team of trained bilingual community health workers (BCHWs) provides education in many different languages to community groups across Queensland. We also provide information via phone, social media (such as Facebook, WeChat, WhatsApp), ethnic newspapers and radio in English and other languages.

To request information in your language please contact our bilingual staff below.


Our team provides individual support and information to people living with hepatitis and to their
families, for example:

  • read and explain letters from your doctor or hospital
  • make medical appointments
  • show you how to get to the hospital if it is your first appointment
  • help you to communicate with your doctor or hospital.

For more details about how we can support you and your family please contact the Program Manager at or 073844 9166.
