Research Capacity Building
Data and research on Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and other Pacific Islander (AA&NHOPI) populations is limited or non-existent. A scarcity of such data makes it difficult to prove that AA&NHOPI groups suffer from specific diseases and health conditions.
Community based organizations and health care providers often face many challenges in conducting research activities and projects. These challenges range from a lack of knowledge and skills to funding and staffing resources.
AAPCHO research capacity building programs help increase a community health centers’ ability to conduct community-based research projects.
