Up to 2.4 million people in the United States are living with chronic hepatitis B and most are unaware of their infection. The month of May is designated as Hepatitis Awareness Month, with May 19th marking Hepatitis Testing Day! Organizations across the country dedicate this month to increasing awareness about viral hepatitis as well as promoting vaccination and testing.

We are excited to share resources and opportunities for everyone to get involved in their community this month. Check out our Hepatitis Awareness Month Events Guide to find a local organization and event near you and the CDC’s Hepatitis Awareness Month and Testing Day webpage that highlights the resources available for Hepatitis Awareness Month.

Visit and connect with Hep B United local partners for more opportunities to get involved!
