The investigators will design an intervention to measure the baseline proportion of Hmong adults (ages 18-64) that have been serologically tested for Hepatitis B. Investigators will work with lay health workers to promote serologically testing for Hepatitis B and increase knowledge of Hepatitis B among Hmong adults. The effectiveness of the lay health worker intervention will be evaluated by conducting a randomized, controlled trial among Hmong adults aged 18-64 not previously tested for hepatitis B.
The primary hypothesis is that the proportion of Hmong adults, ages 18-64 reporting serologically testing for Hepatitis B at post-test will be significantly greater in the intervention group than in the control group.
Secondary hypotheses are:
There will be greater increases in knowledge of Hepatitis B and liver cancer in the intervention group than in the control group.
Participants with greater knowledge of hepatitis B and liver cancer at post-test will be more likely to be serologically tested for hepatitis B.
