APIAHF

APIAHF believes that community-based interventions are a strong tool required for addressing racial health disparities, particularly disparities in chronic health conditions. We support the Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH) program, based in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as a unique and valuable opportunity for communities. For nearly 20 years, REACH grantees have used innovative and locally-driven programs to improve the health of their neighborhoods, from decreasing smoking rates to increasing access to nutritional foods.

APIAHF previously operated the STRIVE project under a REACH grant, in collaboration with the  New York University Center for the Study of Asian American Health from 2012-2013.
