Double Whammy Report

'Double Whammy' Report

The HFA Hepatitis C Needs Assessment (“A Double Whammy”) Report was released at the 14th Australian & New Zealand Haemophilia Conference on Friday 5 October 2007. 

The Report includes recommendations that are being developed as part of the HFA national hepatitis C strategy. It provides evidence of the needs of the bleeding disorders community affected by hepatitis C.

Evaluation of needs assessment

During 2008 HFA evaluated the impact of the work so far on its hepatitis C strategy and consulted with the community and health professionals for their response to the needs assessment. Most of the findings from the consultation were consistent with the Double Whammy Report. There were also some important new findings which are summarised in the Getting it right: evaluating HFA’s hepatitis C work page.

Your say

HFA asked for feedback from the bleeding disorders community about the Report and the recommendations by 18 April 2008. A summary of community feedback was published in the June 2008 National Haemophilia magazine.
