Hepatitis C, Hepatitis B, and HIV in High-Risk Immigrant Ethnic Communities

This training manual for healthcare and community care providers was produced in partnership with the Canadian Liver Foundation, and with funding from the Public Health Agency of Canada. It serves to promote greater awareness and cultural-sensitivity on the part of the professionals about hepatitis C, hepatitis B, and HIV in high-risk immigrant ethnic communities. Although these three illnesses are prevalent in many such communities, the five communities that have been selected for this project are: Chinese, East Indian, Egyptian, Filipino, and Vietnamese.

The hope is that healthcare providers will continually build on and adapt the content of this guide to meet the needs of Canada's diverse population.
