    S2#4 Health equality: fighting for testing and treatment among migrant and refugee populations

    “I never felt the need of sharing my story at work, because I don't know how much they know about hepatitis B, and the moment they know that hepatitis B is contagious they would judge me” says Sidney Vo, a hepatitis B advocate who found out she was living with hepatitis B when she was pregnant with her son in her home country of Vietnam in 2007. A year later, she moved to Australia to help fill the gap in their workforce in early childhood education. After a decade of living in the country Sidney applied for permanent residency, only to find she was met with barriers from the government. In the final episode of the Hep-cast series 2 , Sidney Vo joins Professor Maria Buti from Hospital General Universitari Valle Hebron, Barcelona, Professor Mohammad Ali from the National Liver Foundation of Bangladesh (NLFB) and Camila Picchio, a public health researcher from Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal) to discuss the challenges and barriers to accessing testing in a traditional healthcare setting and key considerations that are needed to reach migrants and refugees populations.

    “We have these little conversations privately, as discreetly as possible, because there is a lot of stigma in prison settings… these guys know that we've been to prison so when we're speaking to some of these people, it really makes a difference” says Clive Williams, a peer support lead for The Hepatitis C Trust, who previously lived with hepatitis C and was treated and cured while in prison. In this episode, Clive Williams joins Dr. John May, President of Health Through Walls, and Dr. Sanjay Sarin, Vice President, Access at FIND to explore viral hepatitis within prison settings and interventions and experiences of people living with viral hepatitis in prison.
