NYC Hep B CoalitionHep B Coalition

The NYC Hep B Coalition was founded in 2009 as a city-wide network of community based organizations, health care organizations, providers, and others interested in hepatitis B and related issues.

Mission

The NYC Hepatitis B Coalition Mission is to coordinate efforts to prevent, manage and reduce hepatitis B among all residents of New York City. The coalition seeks to foster an inclusive collaboration among all stakeholders to advance hepatitis B awareness, screening, access to care, and vaccination through education, outreach, advocacy and support of research.

Founding Organizations

The NYC Department of Health & Mental Hygiene, Office of Viral Hepatitis Coordination, which has since become the Viral Hepatitis Surveillance, Prevention & Control Program (VHSPC) convened leading community organizations focused on hepatitis B to establish the coalition. The overarching goal of VHSPC is to reduce viral hepatitis infection, morbidity and mortality in NYC.

The B Free CEED: National Center of Excellence in the Elimination of Hepatitis B Disparities was a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) funded national resource and expert center committed to eliminating hepatitis B disparities in Asian and Pacific Islanders.
