Then talk to your family, friends and community members. Together, we can end the spread of hepatitis B infection, and prevent the biggest cause of liver cancer worldwide.

Smaller type The California Hep B Free Tour By organizing our community, we can help end up to 80 percent of all liver cancers in California, and even the entire nation. A pilot program being launched in San Francisco is starting to do just that. The San Francisco Hep B Free campaign is a community launched and community based effort to spread education and awareness about how to prevent and treat liver disease caused by the hepatitis B virus. The California Hep B Free Tour will reach out to communities across the state calling on them to join the effort to end hepatitis B disease by spreading awareness through groups and personal contacts. Performing groups along with speakers will draw crowds who will learn more about prevention, screening, vaccination, and treatment of this serious disease while enjoying great shows. The Tour particularly reaches out to college campuses and community events. The California Hep B Free tour utilizes a network of hepatitis B activists and community groups including Team HBV, the Asian Liver Center at Stanford University, AsianWeek newspaper and other media and local partners.
