"Which One Deserves to Die?"
Editor's Note: You might have seen this provocative ad campaign already: ten asian beauty queens with the bold statement, "which one deserves to die?" It's about raising awareness of the fact that one in ten Asian Americans are infected with Hepatitis B. San Francisco is a gateway city for Asian immigrants from countries with a high prevalence of Hepatitis B. Recent data released from the National Cancer Institute says that San Francisco also has the highest rate of liver cancer in the nation. Eight out of ten liver cancer patients start off as Hepatitis B patients. Dr. Stuart Fong runs the Hepatitis B vaccination clinic at the Chinese Hospital in San Francisco. He talks about the campaign to make San Francisco the first Hepatitis B free city in the country.
