This page will be updated frequently with tailored resources for community health centers, multilingual and culturally appropriate materials for Asian American (AA), Native Hawaiian (NH), and Pacific Islander (PI) communities, resources to address stigma related to COVID-19, public health considerations, webinar opportunities, and policy updates. This page covers the following areas: 

If you have questions, would you like to contribute resources to this page, and/or require technical assistance, please email preparedness@aapcho.org.

AAPCHO is working to get personal protective equipment (PPE) to our member health centers providing care to some of the most vulnerable populations disproportionately at risk. Items like gowns, gloves and masks are essential in treating COVID-19. Our team is coordinating with AAPCHO member health centers who need supplies, and with equipment donors who can help meet this need. Fill out the form today!

AAPCHO encourages all health centers to visit the Health Center Resource Clearinghouse to access compiled resources on COVID-19 from 20 NationalCooperative Agreement organizations and partners.
