About the C-YA! Project

The C-YA! Project aims to eliminate the deadly Hepatitis C virus (HCV) from our community.

Our goal is to make curative treatment as easy as possible, so we take our service to high-risk populations – operating out of a network of pharmacies in the Beenleigh and Logan area.

Treatments are private and discreet and our staff take the utmost care to meet the individual needs of each patient. Best of all, it’s free to access and the medication is affordable as it is covered under the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme.​

The project provides all the support you need to say C-YA! to the virus.

The C-YA! Project is funded by the Gilead Fellowship, whose aim is to support innovative local research initiatives to improve patient outcomes, in particular in the understanding of HIV, chronic viral hepatitis, haematological malignancies, non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), inflammatory diseases and invasive fungal infection. Their grants program funds projects with a real-world focus that are committed to the development and implementation of best practice to enhance patient outcomes.

HCV is a blood-borne virus and is most commonly transmitted through shared injecting equipment.​

Viral hepatitis is a leading cause of mortality resulting in 1.46 million deaths worldwide in 2015.​

The World Health Organisation has set targets to achieve elimination of viral hepatitis by 2030.

The virus is highly prevalent in our community.

Brisbane South has the 5th highest prevalence of Hepatitis C in Australia.

Despite this our community has the 3rd lowest uptake of treatment.
If you have ever used or shared a needle, you are at risk and need to get tested!

New Direct Acting Antivral (DAA) therapies for chronic HCV infection are now listed on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme.
