Most patients with untreated hepatitis B show no symptoms until liver damage has already taken a toll. This program highlights the importance for those at risk to overcome the perceived stigma of the disease and be tested for or vaccinated against it. Routes of transmission, its prevalence among Asian Americans (nearly one in ten are HBV-positive), the possibility of cirrhosis if treatment is avoided, and the pharmaceuticals used to control HBV are all covered, with input from both patients and physicians. Dr. Tom Tran of the Asian Pacific Health Center addresses the sometimes-prohibitive cost of therapy and the work his center does to help the uninsured receive care.
