Community-based Programs & Research

AAPCHO develops programs that are tailored to the cultural and language needs of the population served by our community-based member health organizations.

Community-based Programs & Research

AAPCHO develops programs that are tailored to the cultural and language needs of the population served by our community-based member health organizations.

AAPCHO’s programs and services are tailored to support community health centers and other community-based organizations serving over 1.2 million Asian Americans (AAs), Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders (NH/PIs). These medically underserved communities are primarily low-income, uninsured, and would otherwise not get the care that they need. AAPCHO aims to fill the gap by offering health education and promotion programs, technical assistance, training, research and data, and resources to support organizations serving these communities and to improve the health status and access of AAs and NH/PIs everywhere.

Trainings & Services

Webinars

We offer trainings throughout the year to share best practices to improve AA and NH/PI health. All trainings are offered live, as well as on-demand to watch on your schedule.

Learning Collaboratives

Join us for our learning collaboratives where participants have an opportunity to engage in intimate peer-to-peer information and resource sharing.

Consultations

We provide technical assistance and expert consultation to support and build the capacity of organizations serving AAs and NH/PIs.

Community-Based Initiatives

TB Elimination Alliance

The Tuberculosis (TB) Elimination Alliance works closely with state and local TB control programs and community-based organizations, focusing outreach to A/AA and NH/PI communities with the highest TB burden.

Pacific Islander Diabetes Prevention Program

The Pacific Islander Diabetes Prevention Program is a national program that builds the infrastructure of local organizations to deliver lifestyle change programs, and aims to reverse prediabetes, decrease the incidence of type 2 diabetes, and reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke, among Pacific Islanders.

Pacific Islander Center of Primary Care Excellence

The Pacific Islander Center of Primary Care Excellence (PI-CoPCE) is a self-governed, community-based initiative housed within AAPCHO, and was established to improve the health of Pacific Islanders in the United States and U.S. Pacific through primary care support, research, workforce development, and community training and advocacy.

Member-Only Services

AAPCHO Community IRB

In an effort to increase AAPCHO member health centers’ capacity to conduct ethical and culturally and linguistically appropriate research, AAPCHO developed an in-house Institutional Review Board (IRB), which helps ensure that AAPCHO or member-initiated research is relevant to member communities and is conducted with high standards of research integrity.

In-Depth Policy Analysis

AAPCHO advocates for and works closely with our member health centers to improve the health status and access of medically underserved AAs and NH/PIs. AAPCHO’s Policy and Advocacy team provides members with tailored updates in a monthly Policy Roundup newsletter, 1:1 policy consultations, and more.
