Research Capacity Building
AAPCHO’s Medically Underserved Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and other Pacific Islander (AA&NHOPI) Communities (MUAC) Project provides government agencies and public health advocates a better understanding of the health needs of AA & NHOPIs by using geographical information systems (GIS). The project developed an index including data on AA & NHOPI populations, poverty levels, English proficiency and others to identify MUACs.
This program is not currently funded. Services are provided in-kind.
To provide an initial awareness of areas where AA&NHOPIs lack access to health care and to guide effective resource allocation.
