Hep B United Coalition
Elimination of hepatitis B is the ultimate goal of the Hepatitis B Foundation and the focus of our public health programs. To achieve this goal, we have developed successful community-based programs to increase vaccination, screening and linkage to care to stop the spread of hepatitis B, and established a national coalition of groups working on the issues across America.

About Hep B United
HBF, in partnership with AAPCHO (Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organizations), created and co-chairs Hep B United, a national coalition of 30+ member coalitions in 29 cities and 23 states, that are working to address hepatitis B in their local communities. With our leadership, Hep B United members are finding success in bringing together key stakeholders such as community-based organizations, healthcare providers, hospitals and clinics, state and local health departments, student groups, and elected officials and community leaders to increase HBV awareness, screening, vaccination and linkage to care in high-risk communities.
Hep B United is also proud to be an official partner of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and is co-branded with its Know Hepatitis B campaign, their first national multi-lingual awareness campaign on hepatitis B.
