SF Hep B Free is excited to announce 2 exciting legislative proposals that take us one step closer to our goal of ending chronic Hepatitis B.
The Two Proposals:
Resolution to Make April 30th National Adult Hepatitis B Vaccination Awareness Day
Introduction of the Liver Illness Visibility, Education and Research (LIVER) Act of 2019 (HR 3016).
Introduced by Representative Nydia Velazquez (D-NY), the bill takes bold steps to increase investments in research, prevention, and awareness activities to address hepatitis B
The LIVER Act will authorize an additional $45 million a year for 5 years for hepatitis B and liver cancer research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH)
