AAPCHO generates demographic and health-related data that has often been non-existent for Asian American, Native Hawaiians, and other Pacific Islanders (AA&NHOPIs). We offer resources to organizations and individuals interested in improving the health status and access of AA&NHOPIs.
AAPCHO’s resources range from translated health education materials for patients and maps detailing areas with medically underserved AA&NHOPIs, to listservs that electronically link individuals from across the country.
Our database also includes resources from other organizations with the intention of making such resources more easily accessible to AA&NHOPI populations. No copyright infringement is intended in these cases.
We invite you to explore the left sidebar navigation in this section to search our Resources Database or to join a listserv to receive health updates and information related to our communities.
