Almost a million people die of liver cancer and liver disease caused by hepatitis B every year even though it is preventable through vaccination and protective shots given at birth. Hep B Moms is dedicated to the elimination of mother-to-child transmission of hepatitis B infection and to protect every child from liver cancer caused by hepatitis B. We are a unique resource that offers tools and educational materials for pregnant women, health care providers, perinatal hepatitis B prevention coordinators, public health officials and anyone seeking to learn more about hepatitis B.
Many pregnant women with chronic hepatitis B are unaware of their infection and could end up silently passing the virus to the next generation at birth. Hep B Moms helps to empower women so they can say “Hep B stops with me.”
