Asian Liver Center

The Stanford Asian Liver Center at Peking University
The Stanford Center at Peking University was formally established on March 21, 2012 to expand Stanford's teaching and research opportunities in China. Through the center at Peking University, Stanford faculty and students are able to tap into a wealth of resources, allowing them to pursue fieldwork and internships in various subject areas. Like the Asian Liver Center at Stanford University, the Asian Liver Center at Peking University (Peking ALC) aims to carry out public projects that will fight against hepatitis B transmission, lack of awareness, and misconceptions about hepatitis B. These projects are rooted in the C.A.R.E. approach:

Collaboration Since launching operations in China, the Peking ALC has built partnerships with local governments like the Health Department of the Gansu Province, public health institutions like All-China Women's Federation and Chinese Nursing Association, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and many organizations founded by HBV carriers. By working with various partners, the Asian Liver Center can establish unifying connections to eradicate hepatitis B. Advocacy The Peking ALC aims to support the HBV carriers' organizations that are trying to educate the public on Hepatitis B. By supporting them, we make efforts together to reduce public discrimination and misunderstandings about HBV carriers. Raising Awareness and Communication The Peking ALC creates projects and carries out events that raise awareness in the public as well as on school campuses. By working with many universities in Beijing, the Peking ALC promotes youth awareness and fosters a community among students. Education Through public events and lectures, the Peking ALC hopes to educate all types of people, including medical workers, enterprise stuff and students.
