GET INFORMED, GET TESTED, SPREAD THE MESSAGE
There are 370 million people worldwide chronically infected with hepatitis B, the leading cause of liver cancer. The majority of those with chronic infection acquired it from mother-to-child transmission at birth or during early childhood. A million people die of this disease every year, but it is entirely preventable through vaccinations and protective shots given at birth.

On this site you will find interactive discussion boards, the latest up-to-date information, news about what is being done in your area, downloadable videos and educational materials, and ways you can help.
