Campaign Background

The B HERE events at UC Irvine are designed to raise awareness of hepatitis B and encourage young people to take action against the disease. The campaign is sponsored by Gilead Sciences, a leading maker of medicines for chronic hepatitis B, with support from campus partners Alpha Phi Omega and the Chinese Association of UCI. Hepatitis B is the second-leading cause of human cancer after tobacco. The virus that causes hepatitis B is 100 times more easily transmitted than the AIDS virus. Asian Americans are 20 times more likely to have the disease compared to the overall U.S. population.
