San Francisco Hep B Free (SFHBF) is a model collaboration between city government, private healthcare, and community organizations driven by the goal of making San Francisco a hepatitis B-free city by (1) creating public and healthcare provider awareness about the importance of testing & vaccinating Asian & Pacific Islanders (APIs) for hepatitis B; (2) promoting routine HBV screenings and vaccinations within the primary care medical community; and (3) facilitating access to treatment for chronically infected individuals. Strategies include educational opportunities for primary care clinicians, grass roots outreach and education for API communities, and broad scale public awareness campaigns. The campaigns successes so far have been due to SFBHF's capacity to galvanize city residents, community leaders, policy makers, and medical institutions.
