Anti-Hepatitis B Program
Hepatitis B is a serious and deadly virus that can infect people of all ages. Approximately two billion people have been infected with Hepatitis B worldwide – that’s 1 in 3 people.
Plasma collected from qualified donors is used to create Hepatitis B Immune Globulin (HBIG), a treatment that is very effective in preventing an exposed person from contracting Hepatitis B. The donations are primarily used by first responders and front-line workers who experience incidental exposure to blood or bodily fluids (needle sticks, bites, scratches, etc.).
