Culturally-Adapted Materials and Curricula

B FREE CEED

Since the end of 2008, the B Free CEED Partnership has been working to create a campaign to encourage screening for hepatitis B among the Chinese and Korean communities at highest risk for infection. Informed by data collected over a period of two years from NYC Korean and Chinese residents, the campaign was developed with the award-winning NYC advertising agency, APartnership. The result is a multi-phase campaign to build awareness, decrease hepatitis B-related stigma, and to encourage the at-risk community to know their hepatitis B status by getting tested.

The campaign includes a 30-second public service announcement available in Chinese and Korean with English subtitles, as well as print ads available in Chinese, Korean, and English available. To view B FREE CEED’s culturally-adapted materials, click here.

MARHABA

The Muslim Americans Reaching for Health and Building Alliances (MARHABA) is a study of breast and cervical cancer screening barriers and facilitators among a diverse group of Muslim women in New York City, including women from the African American African, South Asian, Middle Eastern, and Southeast Asian Muslim communities. MARHABA uses a community-based participatory research framework to collaborate with mosques, community-based organizations and social service agencies in NYC. Study findings informed the development of a large-scale culturally-tailored messaging campaign to promote cancer awareness and screening in diverse NYC Muslim populations.
