#justB: Real People Sharing Their Hepatitis B Stories
The #justB storytelling campaign aims to raise the profile of hepatitis B as an urgent public health priority and helps put a human face on this serious disease by sharing stories of real people living with or affected by hepatitis B. The goals of the campaign are to increase awareness and advocacy; decrease stigma and discrimination; and promote testing, vaccination, linkage to care, and treatment to help save lives. The #justB storytelling campaign is a program of the Hepatitis B Foundation in collaboration with StoryCenter and AAPCHO.
New #justB Stories
The Hepatitis B Foundation partnered with StoryCenter to host our sixth #justB digital storytelling workshop in March 2022. Five new stories (including versions in English, French, Mandingo, Mandarin, and Cantonese) were created during this workshop - watch them below!

If you live outside the United States, we recently launched the B the Voice Story Bank as part of our new 300 Million Reasons campaign. Building upon the success of our national #justB campaign, B the Voice provides an online platform for people living with hepatitis B, their families, and community health workers and health care providers to share their first-hand knowledge and experiences with a global audience.
