USING ART TO SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT HEP C
The Justice Health and Forensic Health Network (JHFHN) hold education sessions in jails about hepatitis C called HIPE – Hepatitis in Prisons Elimination. NUAA’s Peerlink workers attend these sessions to provide peer education around harm reduction and hep C prevention.
As part of the HIPE sessions, JHFHN holds a poster competition and the winners are put around the health clinics. The inmates were given slogans as well as paper and pens to help them along.
Here are some of the cool posters that the men and women inside have come up with!
