Hepatitis Art Contest

Hepatitis Art Contest

CSIH, in partnership with Correctional Service Canada (CSC) and support from Gilead Sciences Canada, organizes the World Hepatitis Day Art Contest for federal inmates across Canada.

Hepatitis, hepatitis C in particular,  disproportionately affects people who are incarcerated, contributing to the spread of hepatitis and perpetuating health inequities. Correctional institutions therefore represent an important public health setting for hepatitis testing and treatment, and raising awareness of these issues. The main aim of the Hepatitis Art Contest is to encourage inmates to get informed and know their status by getting tested. These actions bring Canada one step closer to meeting its commitment to eliminate viral hepatitis by 2030.

The 2019 theme, “Finding the Missing Millions: Breaking barriers to diagnosis,” reflects the global strategic plan to eliminate hepatitis as a public health concern by 2030. 

CSIH is pleased to showcase the winning entries for the 2019 Contest below:
