Community Advisory Board

Hepatitis B and D Global Community Advisory Board (CAB)

The mission of the CAB is to integrate community perspectives and expertise into hepatitis B and D drug development, as well as public health and clinical research, to ensure that the voices of those living with and affected by hepatitis B and D are represented, and to drive progress toward a hepatitis B cure and effective hepatitis D therapeutics. The HBV CAB is an all-volunteer group composed of 12-15 people living with and affected by CHB who provide individual expertise to inform hepatitis B drug and clinical trial development. HBV-CAB members serve 24-month terms.

Goals/Objectives
  • Provide training and education to facilitate increased community engagement in and awareness of hepatitis B and D drug development, public health research, and programming clinical trials
  • Establish and maintain opportunities for community members to interact with researchers and other key stakeholders and provide their input/recommendations on topics such as drug development and clinical trials, treatment guidelines, and hepatitis B and D diagnostics.
  • Promote diverse and inclusive representation of communities highly affected by hepatitis B and D in drug development, public health research and programming, and clinical research
