SF Hep B Free – Bay Area
The San Francisco Hep B Free- Bay Area campaign is a collaboration of over thirty diverse public and private interests working together to eliminate the transmission of hepatitis B, with a special emphasis on the Asian and Pacific Islander populations who bear a disproportionate rate of chronic hepatitis B infection.
The goals are:
- To create public and healthcare provider awareness about the importance of testing & vaccinating Asian Pacific Islanders (API) for hepatitis B.
- To promote routine hepatitis B testing and vaccination within the primary care medical community.
- To ensure access to treatment for chronically infected individuals.
