Hep B United Philadelphia
Hep B United Philadelphia (HBUP) is a local community-owned coalition that was created to increase hepatitis B testing and vaccination in Philadelphia through public awareness and education. Led by the Hepatitis B Foundation, we currently have over 70 coalition partners including the Philadelphia Department of Public Health, university health systems, social service providers, health care professionals, nonprofit advocates, community organizations, and providers of human services to Philadelphia's Asian American, Pacific Islander, and African immigrant communities. We also have the support of the Pennsylvania Governor’s Commission on Asian American Affairs, and the Mayor’s Advisory Commission on Asian American Affairs. We are an active member of the national Hep B United coalition.
Since 2008, we have reached over 10,000 Philadelphians, provided in‐person education for over 7,500; offered free hepatitis B screening to 4,000; administered over 500 free doses of the hepatitis B vaccine; and found medical homes for 85% of infected individuals in our program! Hep B United Philadelphia is now one of the largest hepatitis B coalitions in the U.S. Our community program for culturally competent hepatitis B screening, vaccination and linkage to care is helping to identify best practices for cities around the U.S
