Our Focus Areas

Our current efforts fall within three focus areas:  health equity & access, training & capacity building, and health care quality & innovation.

Health Equity & Access

The Challenge:
Providers and policymakers are often unaware that AAs, NHs and PIs suffer more from certain diseases than whites or other racial/ethnic groups, such as hepatitis B, diabetes and tuberculosis. There is a lack of culturally and linguistically responsive policies and programs to serve AAs, NHs, and PIs experiencing these disparities.

Our Strategy:
AAPCHO advocates for policies and offers programs and services which are tailored to the cultural and language needs of AAs, NHs, and PIs.

Training & Capacity Building

The Challenge:
Disaggregated data, community-based research, and culturally- and linguistically-tailored training and resources for organizations serving AA, NH, and PI populations are limited or non-existent. Community based organizations and health care providers often face many challenges in providing care and other social services to AAs, NHs, and PIs, an extremely diverse and the fastest growing population in the United States.

Our Strategy:
AAPCHO, in collaboration with our network of member health centers and broad partners, provides training, technical assistance, research, and other capacity building programs and services to organizations to support them in providing high quality and accessible care to AAs, NHs, and PIs.

Health Care Quality & Innovation

The Challenge:
Effective health care services and systems are ones that are easy to navigate and work seamlessly with other critical systems, such as community and social services, and are accessible to all. The United States spends more money per person on health care than any other advanced nation, yet AAs, NHs, and PIs, and other communities of color continue to experience disparities and lag behind in health access and outcomes.

Our Strategy:
In collaboration with our member health centers, community partners and policymakers, AAPCHO works to help ensure that AAs, NHs, and PIs, and all communities have access to high quality health care, and aims to improve health outcomes and public health overall.
