Cultural Language Access Standards in Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander Serving Health Centers: 2016 Survey Report

AAPCHO’s culturally and linguistically appropriate services (CLAS) in AA&NHPI-serving health enters survey was designed to assess the specific cultural and language access policies, practices, and services provided by health centers.

This report provides an overview of the findings from that survey, which will allow AAPCHO to identify documented policies and organizational practices that exist among AA&NHPI-serving health centers used to improve the quality of care and health outcomes for AA&NHPI-serving health center patients. The lessons learned from this survey assist in identifying a baseline of practices and policies by which CLAS is achieved for AA&NHPI populations.
