Hepatitis B and hepatitis C are detected by blood test. Testing is easy and confidential, and available at many places: GPs, Family Planning Clinics, Aboriginal Medical Services, and Sexual health clinics.
Dried Blood Spot (DBS) testing is a free, convenient, effective and confidential self-collection method to test for HIV and/or Hepatitis C that people can do in the privacy of their own homes. To see if you are eligible for this alternative form of testing go to the DBS testing website.
