TREAT Asia’s educational materials about hepatitis C and HIV co-infection provide easy-to-understand information on hepatitis C and its treatment. They can be used by patients, community members, and healthcare providers to better understand the impact of co-infection and how to manage it.

The materials are available in English, Indonesian, Malay, Mandarin, Thai, and Vietnamese. They include animated videos, flip charts, and booklets featuring a young man named Zaki as he navigates co-infection, plus flyers and treatment planning booklets designed to help patients take and adhere to treatment. These materials are for informational purposes only and should not be used in place of a visit or consultation with a healthcare provider.
