COVID-19

Last Updated: 3/31/2020

AAPCHO is monitoring novel coronavirus alerts and information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other health agencies across the country. We will disseminate pressing information as it becomes available.

Check this page often for updates and additions to the following list of multi-lingual health resources on novel coronavirus. AAPCHO will continue to gather and post relevant materials in as many languages as possible.

Note: AAPCHO aims to make in-language information available to AA and NHPIs communities, but reminds all visitors that the following materials may reference or link to clinical guidelines that differ from those set forth by the CDC. See CDC’s Information for Healthcare Professionals to stay abreast of CDC-endorsed coronavirus clinical guidelines.

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 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).
