Hep Free Hawai'i

Hep Hawaii Postcard Hep Free Hawai'i (HFH) was created in 2011 as a grassroots coalition, and as the first coalition in Hawai'i dedicated to viral hepatitis education and awareness, screening, vaccinations, and equal access to care for everyone with hepatitis B and/or C. Over the last three years, HFH has become a coordinated coalition of more than 60 organizations combining efforts to maximize limited resources, partnering to raise awareness about viral hepatitis in Hawai'i, and helping people in Hawai'i learn their status and begin and maintain a linkage to care.
