Hep Free Hawai`i (HFH) is a grassroots campaign started by hepatitis advocates in Hawai`i to bring attention to the epidemic of chronic hepatitis B and C and liver disease in our islands. Through increasing awareness, HFH hopes to encourage everyone in Hawai`i to learn their hepatitis status, and for those living with hepatitis or other liver disease to access the care they need to live healthy lives.
Hep Free Hawai`i (HFH) is a project of The CHOW Project, a 501 (c) (3) organization acting as fiscal sponsor. For more information on fiscal sponsorship, click here.
Hep Free Hawai`i Vision
To create a Hawai`i free of new viral hepatitis infections with a comprehensive system of care to support the health and well-being of persons living with chronic hepatitis B and/or C and other liver diseases.
To reach out to Hawai`i’s `ohana (family) to raise awareness and encourage active participation in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of viral hepatitis and liver disease in Hawai`i.
Hep Free Hawai`i will raise awareness about viral hepatitis in Hawai`i by helping people to learn their hepatitis status through access to hepatitis testing; to protect themselves from hepatitis through access to vaccinations; and to connect people living with hepatitis to care services.
