The "Best Practices in Our Communities" Conference, hosted by Pacific Clinics and co-sponsored by the CRDP (California Reducing Disparities Project) API SPW (Asian Pacific Islander Strategic Planning Workgroup) introduced participants to Community Defined Evidence practices that are more effective in addressing cultural disparities and providing services that are culturally and linguistically relevant.
These fact sheets (both infographic style and an extended-length version) are intended for service providers working with Asian American & Pacific Islander populations. The infographics are intended for quick use/reference at a glance, while the extended-length versions contain more specific detail based on the primary sources.
It is with much excitement, appreciation and gratitude that we present this population report to the community on behalf of the API-SPW. Our 55 project members, steering committee members, consultants, and staff have put in tremendous amount of hours and work for the past two and half years. This report is the culmination of this effort that documents the disparities experienced in the community. It also offers recommendations to reduce these disparities.
