Hepatitis C has affected our community at a rate most are still unaware of. Since people are unaware of their status, many do not know they are living with the virus and numbers continue to grow. Awareness is key to getting people interested and interacting in events. Last year we held a testing day, 22 people showed up and got tested. that never would have other wise, We have an agency that is well known in the community as a safe place. People are willing and open minded when they arrive that provides us with the perfect opportunity to share resources, promote testing, offer a quiz, create a coloring contest or a poster contest our options are endless. We reach the people we reach as we are Indigenous and they trust us. I hold this event every year with little or no money only the resources WHD provides. Let us do it again.

Confidential testing will be available during the event between 4 – 7 p.m. for those who are interested.

One in 12 people worldwide are living with hepatitis B or C – including 600, 000 Canadians – with many unaware they are infected. Both viruses are transmitted through blood to blood contact. In Canada, the following population groups are most at risk for acquiring hepatitis B or C are persons who use drugs, people who are involved with the correctional system, people who are homeless or under-housed, Aboriginal persons, street involved youth, and people with tattoos or piercings. Those who are most likely to be affected by hepatitis C and not know it are; baby boomers (people born between 1945 and 1975, as a result of unsafe medical procedures and blood transfusion) and immigrants (due to high prevalence of hepatitis in their countries of origin). Rates for new Hepatitis C infection in Windsor-Essex County are 15% higher than the Ontario average.
