AAPCHO is continuously monitoring novel Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) alerts and information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), and other health agencies across the United States and its territories.

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.

AAPCHO is proud to partner and is part of the Pacific Islander COVID-19 Response Team and the Asian American Pacific Islander Emergency Response Network to provide culturally competent and in-language resources and materials for those disproportionately impacted by COVID-19.

The Pacific Islander COVID-19 Response Team is a national group of Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (NHPI) researchers, health experts, community leaders and advocates who have come together to inform and support families and communities about COVID-19. Resources available here »

 

 

  • NHPI COVID-19 Toolkit – In partnership with the Southern California Pacific Islander COVID-19 Response Team, the Los Angeles County Chief Executive Office has released the Native Hawaiian Pacific Islander COVID-19 Community Toolkit, a rich resource that includes infographics and public service announcements (PSAs) in Chamorro, Hawaiian, Marshallese, Samoan, and Tongan languages.

The Asian American and Pacific Islander Emergency Response Network (ERN) is a collaboration among the National Council of Asian Pacific Americans and other non-profit groups with the goal of laying the foundation for a more unified AA and NHPI movement. Find more information » 

AAPCHO acknowledges the increasing levels of stigma, racism, and xenophobia toward AA and NHPI communities as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. We encourage community health center providers, community-based organizations, educators, and the general public to combat this stigma by addressing misinformation and practicing cultural humility.

Cultural humility is a respectful approach toward individuals of other cultures that continuously pushes one to challenge cultural biases (CHCS, 2017).
