2014 – 2016 Hep B United Strategic Plan

Hep B United’s 2014-2016 Strategic Plan was developed in alignment with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Action Plan for the Prevention, Care & Treatment of Viral Hepatitis. The community strategic plan responds to strategic priority areas established at the national level and coordinates activities of Hep B United member coalitions.
