APIAHF is closely monitoring the novel Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) updates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). This page will be updated regularly as news and resources develop.


Our Policy Work on COVID-19

APIAHF is advocating for an equitable federal response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are fighting to ensure public health officials have the detailed demographic data they need to help all communities; to guarantee people who are Limited-English Proficient have their civil rights respected; and to demand the inclusion of immigrant and AA and NHPI communities in the federal public health and economic responses.

 

COVID-19 Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander Language Resources

AA & NHPI communities are diverse and we want to make sure everyone is getting connected to resources in their languages. Visit our community library of  in-language resources that will help you, your family and community combat COVID-19. If you’d like to add an in-language resource that you’ve seen or created to the library, please fill out this form.
