Hep B United is working to support and leverage the success of local campaigns that are led by community-based organizations, health departments, healthcare providers, academic institutions, political leaders, businesses and thousands of students across the country.
Together these campaigns across the country are helping to raise awareness that hepatitis B is preventable and treatable. Through ongoing community-based education and screening events, these local initiatives are increasing testing, vaccination and linkage to care rates for hepatitis B, particularly among high-risk Asian American communities.
