What is the LiverWELL® Reveal program?
If you are living with liver disease, who do you turn to in the community for help and support? Up to 40% of Australians are living with fatty liver disease and many of these people will develop more serious conditions like non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), cirrhosis and even liver cancer.
Reveal is a new program run by Hepatitis Victoria/LiverWELL® which enables community members and the health care workforce to provide input which will enable support for people living with, or at risk of liver disease and viral hepatitis.
Hepatitis Victoria has more than 26 years of experience supporting people impacted by viral hepatitis (predominantly hepatitis B and C). As we continue to strive for the elimination by 2030 of viral hepatitis as a public health threat, the organisation has broadened its strategic direction to offer the same level of support, education and advocacy for people who are impacted by other liver diseases.
The Hepatitis Victoria/LiverWELL® InfoLine service has seen an increasing number of calls relating to general liver health, these calls now make up almost 20% of enquiries. It is clear that people are looking for support and information on issues such as fatty liver disease, non-alcoholic steatohepatitis, cirrhosis, diet and lifestyle.
