Using peer-to-peer support to encourage people to access testing and treatment

The Hepatitis C Trust share details about the charity’s innovative use of peer-to-peer support. People who have lived experience of hepatitis C deliver workshops and one-to-one support to increase awareness of hepatitis C, encourage people to access testing, and support engagement with treatment. The use of peer support services has enabled the trust to engage with under served populations where hepatitis C is most prevalent, such as people who inject drugs and people who are homeless.
