Sexual and Reproductive Health is a priority stream within the Grampians Region Population Health Plan 2023 - 2029.  Viral hepatitis has been incorporated into this stream of work, in line with the Victorian Government’s Sexual and reproductive health and viral hepatitis strategy 2022-30, which recognises the common element of “treatment as prevention” for viral hepatitis and sexually transmitted infections.

Sexual and reproductive health and viral hepatitis in the Grampians region 2023-2029 

The Grampians Public Health Unit (GPHU) has worked closely with Ballarat Community Health (BCH), Women’s Health Grampians and a broad range of stakeholders, to understand the current sexual and reproductive health landscape in the region- including key strengths and resources, barriers to accessing sexual health care and possible solutions for improving outcomes, with a focus on improving health equity. 

The project report Sexual and reproductive health and viral hepatitis in the Grampians region 2023-2029 outlines the methodology and findings of a sexual and reproductive health and viral hepatitis needs assessment of the Grampians region, the processes used to synthesise this information and the resultant project plan for implementation.
