CDC Updates Know Hepatitis B Campaign Materials

May 13, 2021 | Julia Zigman

In conjunction with Hepatitis Awareness Month, CDC released a new installment of the Know Hepatitis B (KHB) campaign materials. CDC updated social media content and graphics to support the campaign and updated hepatitis B educational resources, including resources translated to Mandarin, Vietnamese, and Korean.

Hepatitis B is common worldwide, especially in many parts of Asia and the Pacific Islands. In the United States, hepatitis B disproportionately affects Asian Americans. While Asian Americans make up 6% of the US population, they account for more than 60% of Americans living with hepatitis B.

Left untreated, nearly 1 in 4 people living with hepatitis B develop serious liver problems, even liver cancer. In fact, hepatitis B-related liver cancer is a leading cause of cancer deaths among Asian Americans. Getting tested for hepatitis B can help many people access lifesaving treatments that can prevent serious liver damage.
