Public Health

The Baruch S. Blumberg Institute addresses important public health issues through its partnership with the Hepatitis B Foundation, which has significant public health programs both in the U.S. and in select countries of high incidence. The primary goal of our public health efforts is to decrease the burden of disease and death from hepatitis B and liver cancer by increasing awareness, testing, and linkage to care to prevent and control this serious liver infection. The Hepatitis B Foundation serves as a trusted global authority with 2 million unique visits from 180 countries to its website and service to thousands of people worldwide who need information and support.
