Keywords Hepatitis B; Asian Americans; Chronic hepatitis B; Vaccination
Core Tip Hepatitis B viral infections disproportionately affect Asian Americans. Untreated, hepatitis B viral infections can lead to hepatocellular carcinoma that is almost universally fatal. Unfortunately, a vast majority of Asian Americans have not been screened. To reduce the HBV burden, screening both in community and clinical settings must be accelerated; and both physicians and patients must see the need for testing. Based on test results, those who screen positive must be referred to appropriate care and those without natural immunity, recommended for vaccination.
