Hepatitis B

Hepatitis B causes up to 80% of all liver cancer and most often appears in people of working age between 35-65 years. In the United States, 1 in 12 Asian Americans is chronically infected with the hepatitis B virus. Forty percent of the world’s cases are in China, where carriers can face discrimination and stigmatization in the workplace due to misconceptions surrounding transmission.

Hepatitis B is spread through birth, blood or sex and is vaccine preventable. Screening and early detection are critically important.

The Global Business Group on Health collaborates with the Asian Liver Center at Stanford University in the U.S. and China to address this issue through its JoinJade Employer Collaborative.
