Dear Friends and Supporters,
The Asian Health Coalition and its partners are pleased to share a summary brief (click here) which highlights the progress made through the “Don’t Let Hepatitis B Win” Campaign. The Campaign is a diverse public and private collaboration unifying the Asian and African immigrant and refugee communities in Illinois along with health care systems, policymakers, and general public to increase Hepatitis B education and awareness, screening, vaccination and treatment opportunities.
Over the past year, Campaign partners have worked hard to provide Hepatitis B education to more than 4,000 foreign-born Asians and Africans in the state of Illinois, and facilitated hepatitis B screenings to over 400 individuals in partnership with local physicians serving the community. A bold, multilingual community media awareness was also launched to encourage individuals to get tested and vaccinated.
This brief is an acknowledgment of the accomplishments that have been made through the collective efforts of the following partners and we greatly appreciate their work!
Our thanks to Alliance for Filipino Immigrant Rights and Empowerment, Cambodian Association of Illinois, Chinese Mutual Aid Association, Hamdard Health and Human Services, Heartland Health Centers, Korean American Community Services, Lao American Organization of Elgin, Ruth M. Rothstein CORE Center, University of Chicago’s Office of Community Engagement and Cancer Disparities, and Asian Americans Advancing Justice – Chicago.
