The Jade Ribbon Youth Council is proud to announce the first annual B-Inspired Contest! Entrants will have the opportunity to receive great prizes, to obtain recognition from Asian American political leaders, and to contribute in the fight against hepatitis B and liver cancer.Jade Ribbon Campaign
To increase awareness and provide ethnic-sensitive health information to the Asian and Pacific Islander (APIs) community and health professionals in an effort to reduce the greatest health disparity between APIs and Caucasians, the Jade Ribbon Campaign is spreading domestically and internationally. Considered to be the essence of heaven and earth, Jade is believed in many Asian cultures to bring good luck and longevity while deflecting negativity. Folded like the Chinese character meaning "person" or "people," the Jade Ribbon symbolizes the united voices of those fighting hepatitis B and liver cancer worldwide.HBV Awareness Week
The Jade Ribbon Youth Council obtains proclamations from Bay Area cities to declare a week dedicated to increasing awareness about hepatitis B and liver cancer. In its first year, nine Bay Area cities proclaimed the third week in March as Hepatitis B Awareness Week. The following year, thirteen cities joined the fight against hepatitis B and liver cancer. This year, the Jade Ribbon Youth Council hopes to bring the issue to the forefront of over twenty cities!HBV and Liver Cancer
