San Francisco Hep B Free Campaign
San Francisco Hep B Free (SFHBF) is a first-of-its-kind collaboration between City government, private healthcare and community organizations. The program's goal is to make San Francisco a hepatitis B-free city by (1) creating public and healthcare provider awareness about the importance of testing & vaccinating Asian & Pacific Islanders (APIs) for hepatitis B; (2) promoting routine hepatitis B (HBV) screenings and vaccinations within the primary care medical community; and (3) facilitating access to treatment for chronically infected individuals. SFBHF is designed to galvanize all city residents, leaders and institutions. Strategies include educational opportunities for primary care clinicians, grass roots outreach and education for API communities, and broad scale public awareness campaigns.
