Hepatitis B Program

Our goal is to determine the prevalence of Hepatitis B in rural areas, vaccinate neonates, prevent mother-to-child transmission, and screen high risk individuals in Vietnam. In addition, we will study current knowledge and attitudes towards hepatitis B in order to guide development of an educational campaign.

Locally,  we are implementing educational programs here in the United States to increase Hepatitis B awareness within the Vietnamese population. Through screening in health fairs and educational forums, we hope to address the prevalence of hepatitis B within the immigrant population.
