Hepatitis B is the most common serious liver infection in the world. Hepatitis B can cause cirrhosis (scarring), liver failure, liver cancer, and even death. One out of seven Vietnamese Americans have chronic hepatitis B infection, and the rate of liver cancer among Vietnamese American men is the highest of any ethnic group.
The Viet Hep B Free Project is dedicated to raising awareness among Vietnamese Americans of this potentially fatal disease. Controlling hepatitis B among Vietnamese Americans and preventing it in future generations is our top priority. This Website provides information to protect you and your loved ones from hepatitis B. Here, you will learn about hepatitis B, how to avoid getting it, how to know whether you have it, and where to go to get tested to find out. We encourage all Vietnamese Americans to get tested for hepatitis B and to obtain treatment or vaccination when appropriate. Together, we can do it.
