Analysis of Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander Health Outcomes at Health Centers

The Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organizations (AAPCHO) created this report which examines the impact of chronic disease outcomes of Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders (NHPIs) at health centers and highlights the similarities and differences between NHPI-, NH-, and PI-serving health centers to health centers in the continental United States, Hawaii, and the Pacific region.

The data presented in this fact sheet is intended to improve understanding of NHPI communities served by health centers, and to help identify priorities and opportunities to improve NHPI health.

AAPCHO’s data analysis, key findings, and recommendations in the subsequent sections serve as an informational resource to health centers on the current status of chronic disease amongst NHPIs at health centers throughout the continental U.S., Hawaii, and the Pacific region. Recommendations include future implications and innovative strategies for addressing PI health issues, considering that reports do not disaggregate race/ethnicity data. Overall, this report offers promising practices to reduce the incidence of HbA1c>9%, including the Pacific Islander Diabetes Prevention Program—a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)-recognized national program addressing prediabetes.
