Chronic Hepatitis B in Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and Other Pacific Islanders: Expert Panel

The Goals and Strategies to Address Chronic Hepatitis B was developed by the National Task Force on Hepatitis B Expert Panel funded through the Office of Minority Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The Expert Panel is comprised of health professionals and community health leaders in the fields of hepatitis B, liver cancer, and Asian American, Native Hawaiians and Other Pacific Islander health.

The Expert Panel works in collaboration with the National Task Force on Hepatitis B: Focus on Asians and Pacific IslandersExit Disclaimer. The Task Force, organized in 1997, brings together scientists, health professionals, not-for-profit organizations, and concerned citizens in a concerted effort to eliminate hepatitis B-related mortality and morbidity over the next generation. The Task Force's mission is to support national, state, and local efforts to prevent new hepatitis B infections through vaccination, to identify chronically infected individuals, and to offer appropriate treatment and cancer screening.
