The self-learning handbook, Speaking up for hepatitis care and support: A skills-building workbook, is available in:
Using Your Voice: A Guide for Getting Hepatitis C Care and Support is a step-by-step audio guide for learning and practicing health negotiation skills at home. The guide is available in English and French.
