Hep C Magazine
Hepatitis NSW publishes two magazines:
The Hep Review: is a 60 page magazine that comes out every three months, containing news, info, opinion, research and feature articles about hepatitis.
Transmission Magazine: is a 16 page magazine that comes out every three months and is targeted at people affected by hep C or at risk of contracting it, and who prefer less text and more artwork.
We strive to provide high quality magazines and content developed by us is produced according to our resources development guidelines. Where relevant, we provide author and source details. Each magazine is produced under the guidance of editorial committees made up of people from the hepatitis and related sectors, and people recruited for their experience in journalism and desktop publishing.

Both our magazines aim to provide you with up-to-date information. They also give you the opportunity to provide input through telling your story, suggesting ideas for the articles that we write and helping with production (proofreading, mailouts, etc.)

This e-mail list provides updates on safety and regulatory issues related to hepatitis B and C products (labeling changes, safety warnings, product approvals). Intended for patients, industry, academia, government agencies, and other interested parties. To sign up, click on link above.
