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.

AAPCHO Community IRB
