HBI-DC promotes preventive health measures for infectious diseases such as HBV, HCV, HIV, and COVID-19 among Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, African immigrants, and other high-risk groups. We utilize our diverse partnerships to offer our services at health fairs, community events, and religious gatherings. Taking targeted outreach approaches, we also assist individuals with limited English proficiency and/or adequate health coverage.
  • HBI-DC uses culturally and linguistically appropriate outreach and education materials.
  • We reach and educate our target audience through ethnic media, such as TV, radio, newspapers, and social media.
  • HBI-DC provides free screening events in the District of Columbia, Virginia, and Maryland.
  • We have also implemented a free hybrid screening model online via Telehealth.
  • Through screenings and tests, HBI-DC identifies patients needing vaccines and then provides resources on the importance of vaccination.
  • We have partnered with local pharmacies, clinics, and physician networks to provide free or low-cost vaccines.
  • HBI-DC provides linkage to care and patient navigation services in multiple languages.
  • We assist in the procurement of treatment services and drug assistance programs.
  • HBI-DC creates public-private partnerships among community-based organizations (CBOs), faith-based (FBOs), medical associations, clinics, hospitals, and health departments.
  • We work with trusted leaders and physicians from the Asian and Pacific Islander and African communities and continue to reach new ethnic groups each year.
  • Through collaborative partnerships, HBI-DC participates in over 50 community events (health fairs, walks, health days at places of worship, designated screening events) annually.
