The NJ Office of Minority and Multicultural Health is a proud member of United Hep B Foundation and the sponsor of the NJ HepB Coalition. The Coalition is open to anyone in the State of NJ with a target population focus on Asian Pacific Islanders (API).

Hep B United New Jersey is a public health awareness and education campaign that addresses the growing severity of hepatitis B and liver cancer in the 21 Counties of New Jersey.
The N.J. Hep B Coalition works closely with its neighboring sister coalition Hep B United Philadelphia and share in the goals to :
(1) Raise the profile of hepatitis B and liver cancer as an urgent health priority;
(2) Promote hepatitis B testing and vaccination, particularly among at‐risk populations; and
(3) Stimulate community engagement and involvement to improve access to care for both prevention
and treatment to reduce the local burden of hepatitis B and liver cancer.

Empowering communities with information to more effectively participate in decision making about their health care is an important component of addressing health disparities. Minority community-based organizations, including faith-based groups, can be effective in conducting campaigns or outreach efforts that are culturally competent. These organizations are also well positioned to build communication networks that aim to reach minority communities. Public health messages must be consistent and credible and must take into account the specific characteristics of the targeted audience
