For 30 years, in keeping with our mission, we have worked to find a cure and improve the quality of life for those affected by hepatitis B worldwide.

HEPATITIS B FOUNDATION

For three decades, the Hepatitis B Foundation has worked to find a cure and improve the quality of life for those living with hepatitis B worldwide. In 2021 are celebrating our 30th Anniversary.

Join the celebration!

The theme for our 30th Anniversary is “Celebrating 30 Years Together.” Along with the events we are planning, the Foundation will continue to raise awareness and spread the word about this major milestone and, more importantly, the Foundation’s many accomplishments. We want you to enjoy the historical content on these pages and we invite you to participate in our scheduled events.

We have launched a video series highlighting selected leaders, supporters, partners and professionals such as Joan and Tim Block, former Congressman Jim Greenwood, and Nobel-Prize Winner Dr. Baruch S. Blumberg. You can watch the first of this series on this website.

The Foundation will convey the good news through social media and share anniversary messages and content in our newsletters. We launched this 30th anniversary website to highlight the Foundation's history, including the creation of our two partner organizations, the Baruch S. Blumberg Institute and the Pennsylvania Biotechnology Center.

OUR STORY

In 1991, Timothy and Joan Block, and Paul and Janine Witte, were deeply moved by the plight of a young family affected by hepatitis B. To the dismay of the Blocks and Wittes, they discovered there was no place for this family to turn for support, nor was there any organization devoted to finding a cure for hepatitis B. With the personal support of Dr. Baruch Blumberg, who won the Nobel Prize for his discovery of the hepatitis B virus, and the help of the New Hope, Pa., community, the Wittes and Blocks responded to this unmet need by working tirelessly to establish the Hepatitis B Foundation.

Today, the Hepatitis B Foundation has since grown from a grassroots effort into a professional organization with a global reach. Since its opening, The Hepatitis B Foundation has established two sister organizations, both of which are nonprofits: the Baruch S. Blumberg Institute and the Pennsylvania Biotechnology Center (PABC).

Together, the three organizations work to advocate and to find a cure for hepatitis B, expand biotechnology in the surrounding region, and launch new ideas and discoveries that can make a difference in the global community.
