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.
The Hep B Coalition meets Quarterly , and convenes committees, work groups, citywide awareness days and trainings. We come together to learn, share information and resources, network, and identify hep B related needs in the community. Committees and Initiatives develop in order to meet needs identified by the community.
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.
The NYC Department of Health & Mental Hygiene Viral Hepatitis Program and CDC funded B Free CEED: National Center of Excellence in the Elimination of Hepatitis B Disparities convened leading NYC community organizations focused on hep B to establish the coalition.
