Hepatitis Australia is a well-respected peak community organisation and key partner in the Australian response to viral hepatitis. We represent and support over 400,000, Australians living with viral hepatitis.

You will have significant Board / Chair experience and a demonstrated commitment to improving health outcomes and advancing social justice in Australia.
