Guillermo T. 1991 (ca.). Hepatitis B Screening Access for Southeast Asians [Final report]. San Francisco, CA: Asian American Health Forum, 16 pp.

Annotation: Although the U.S. Public Health Service provides for hepatitis B surface antigen screening for pregnant women who are refugees, there is concern among many providers of care to the Asian American community that those eligible for these programs are not aware of or do not have access to the facilities that provide the appropriate care. In addition to the accessibility problem, the large majority of Southeast Asians must also deal with linguistic/cultural, structural, educational, and financial barriers which prevent them from receiving appropriate care. This project addressed these and other issues facing this population. All of the sites participating in this project were chosen for their experience and sensitivity in addressing the special needs of this community. The project's goal was to increase access to hepatitis B screening and immunization for Southeast Asian pregnant women and their newborns. [Funded by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau]
