Project 1626: Condom use and hepatitis C knowledge among young people

The aims of this project were to conduct a pilot study of an online survey of (1) young people exposed to injecting, to examine their knowledge regarding hepatitis C prevention and transmission, and to examine the factors associated with high/low levels of knowledge, and (2) of young people more generally regarding condom use and knowledge of STI prevention and transmission. This project was conducted in NSW as a precursor to a periodic survey with potential national roll-out.
