KNOW HEPATITIS B
CDC has launched the third phase of the
Know Hepatitis B Campaign designed to promote Hepatitis B testing among Asian Americans. This
is the first national multi-lingual communications campaign on hepatitis B among Asian Americans. While Asian Americans make up about 5% of the total U.S. population, they account for half of the 2.2 million Americans living with chronic hepatitis B. In fact, one in 12 Asian Americans has Hepatitis B.
New campaign resources, most available in multiple languages:
30 and 60 second video PSAs. One
video features a conversation between a daughter and her parents, with the daughter explaining why Asian Americans should be tested for Hepatitis B. The other PSA
provides key facts about hepatitis B.
