Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organizations (AAPCHO)


The Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organizations (AAPCHO) is a national association representing community health organizations dedicated to promoting advocacy, collaboration and leadership that improves the health status and access of Asian Americans & Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders (AA&NHOPI)* within the United States, its territories, and freely associated states, primarily through our member community health centers.

Year 5 Legacy Pilot Project: Evaluation of an Online Healthcare Provider Tutorial for Hepatitis B Screening and Follow-up

Hepatitis B is a stealth epidemic that disproportionately affects Asian Americans and Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islanders (AAs & NHOPIs). One in 10 AAs & NHOPIs lives with chronic hepatitis B compared with 1 in 1,000 of Whites. As part of AAPCHO’s work to raise awareness and mobilize AA & NHOPI communities to better address hepatitis B, AAPCHO will select four of their community health centers to evaluate an online healthcare provider tutorial for hepatitis B to measure its effectiveness in improving healthcare provider knowledge and behavior around hepatitis B testing and follow up care.
