Hep B United – We Can Stop Hepatitis B

Vision

A future free of hepatitis B around the globe.


Mission Statement

Hep B United is a national coalition dedicated to reducing the health disparities associated with hepatitis B by increasing awareness, screening, vaccination, and linkage to care for high-risk communities across the United States.

Hep B United was co-founded and is co-chaired by the Hepatitis B Foundation and the Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organizations (AAPCHO). The coalition works to reduce the impact of hepatitis B through prevention and education efforts, addressing perinatal transmission, improving screening and linkage to care, contributing to national surveillance data, and advocating on a national level.

Values

Hep B United is a national coalition comprised of advocates, community leaders, and stakeholders that focuses on the health equity, respect, and empowerment of those affected by hepatitis B. Utilizing evidence-based public health best practice, Hep B United promotes equitable access to health care, preventive medicine, testing, linkage to care, and treatment for all communities at risk for hepatitis B.
 

Hep B United Overview and Strategic Priorities

Our Goals

  • Awareness: Raise the profile of hepatitis B and liver cancer as an urgent public health priority.
  • Prevention: Increase hepatitis B testing and vaccination, particularly among Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders and other at-risk communities.
  • Intervention: Improve access to care and treatment for individuals living with hepatitis B to prevent end-stage liver disease and liver cancer.

Hep B United’s strategic plans are in alignment with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Action Plan for the Prevention, Care & Treatment of Viral Hepatitis.
