Hepatitis B
To celebrate World Hepatitis Day on July 28th, MSH CHINA invites all enterprises to “JoinJade for China”.  It is through our joint efforts and collaboration, that we can create workplaces free from hepatitis B discrimination and educate employees about prevention and proper care for the chronically infected.

"JoinJade for China" is a joint project initiated by the Asian Liver Center (ALC)at Stanford University in US & China, Global Business Group on Health, IBM, GE, Intel, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, and HP, Inc. This is the first non-profit project of its kind that is committed to eliminating hepatitis B discrimination in workplaces under the collective leadership of non-government organization and large enterprises. As one of the first 29 JoinJade employers, MSH CHINA is encouraging more companies within our network to also "JoinJade for China.”

|    Hepatitis B virus HBV can only spread in three ways: birthblood and sex
|    Shaking hands and sharing food will NOT spread the virus
|    Prevention against hepatitis B is quite straightforward – vaccination for the virus is the most effective method
|    Chronic hepatitis B carriers can also lead active, healthy lives and manage the diseasebe in well condition through drug intervention.


In China, about 93 million people are infected with chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV), 
representing about 40% of worldwide cases.
 HBV contributes to up to 80% of liver cancer. 
Each year over 300,000 people in China die of HBV-related liver disease and liver cancer. 
These deaths mostly occur at working age between 35-65 years old.
