AAPI Call-in Day: Tell Congress to Support Health Care Reform on August 19!!!

Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders (AAs and NHPIs) need quality affordable health care. One in six Asian Americans and one in four Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders are uninsured. Even with coverage, AAs and NHPIs experience disparities in health outcomes and quality of care.


AAPI Health Care Organizations

In honor of Health Care Reform Week, I thought I would provide links to some of the groups working on healthcare within our AAPI community.  In addition to direct services, many of these groups are involved in advocacy and legislative efforts. This is, by no means, a comprehensive list, just a few groups that are out there doing the hard work. For a more complete directory, including ethnic-specific groups, you can go to the Asian and Pacific Islander Health Care Forum. They have a searchable database on their site.
