April 29, 2021
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WASHINGTON –Today, the Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organizations (AAPCHO) released the following statement on the first 100 days of the Biden-Harris administration.
Jeffrey B. Caballero, AAPCHO’s executive director, said:
“AAPCHO is encouraged by the progress made during the Biden-Harris administration’s first 100 days. In this time, the President has kept his commitment to return civility to the government and put our nation on a path to overcome the worst health and economic crisis of our time. The administration has kept its promise to reverse public charge and other harmful policies of the past four years; mobilized federal resources to support community health centers; expanded access to health care for all Americans including Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders; worked to combat rises in anti-Asian hate; and created an ambitious agenda for American families and immigrants.
“During last night’s address to Congress, the President outlined the next steps of his legislative agenda to rebuild our country, uplift middle-class families, and provide a more inclusive and welcoming environment for immigrants. As the administration works with Congress to pass the American Jobs Plan, American Families Plan, and immigration reform, we urge leaders to continue to prioritize public health and expand access to health care that does not exclude any person living in America. AAPCHO, in collaboration with our members and partners, looks forward to working with the Biden-Harris administration to prioritize the well-being and health of our communities, including Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, Pacific Islanders, and their families seeking primary care.”
AAPCHO is a national association of community health organizations dedicated to promoting advocacy, collaboration and leadership that improves the health status and access of Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders in the United States.
