In this information age it is ironic that credible, reliable information can sometimes be hard to find in the tsunami of results from online searches.
Separating the reliable, evidence-based information from the “alternative” facts can be challenging.
The good news is, if you’re looking for hepatitis-related information in Australia, there’s just one place online you need to visit.
With all topics hepatitis-related, a great first step is Hepatitis SA’s library. It can provide you with the latest news and views about all things health- and hepatitis-related, as well as a wide array of deeper research stretching back years. And you don’t even need to visit us at 3 Hackney Rd, Hackney to make use of it: just visit the library website. (hepsa.asn.au/library)
