About Hepatitis B
- Hepatitis B (HBV) is a serious infection of the liver and the leading cause of liver cancer, killing one million people every year due to the silent-killer infection and its complications. Asian and Pacific Islanders (API) account for over half of 1.3 million chronic hepatitis B cases and half of the deaths resulting from hepatitis B in the United States.
- Hepatitis B is often transmitted at birth and ten times more common than HIV. One in ten Asian and Pacific Islanders are chronically infected with hepatitis B and two out of three are unaware that they are infected because there are often no symptoms.
