As the project has progressed, we have learned that it is important to work closely with the Asian Liver Center, the Beijing Foundation for Hepatitis B Prevention and Control, and the Qinghai CDC. Being in the field has been a crucial component to the success of this program. Without overseeing first- hand the progress of this project, we could not have produced an educational program that is effective for the scope of this year’s project. Next year, we will oversee the third round of vaccinations. By the end of May 2008, all students in Qinghai will have been educated by school health teachers. Beginning in April, we will administer post-education surveys at randomly chosen schools throughout Qinghai. In addition, we will personally give two separate 45-minute teaching seminars to schools in Haidong district, using results from these schools as a baseline to compare the effectiveness of the top-down education program.
