FOR Asian, pacific islander, African, and other communities of color


The Asian Health Coalition

Established in 1996, the Asian Health Coalition strives to improve the health and wellness of primarily Asians and Pacific Islanders, as well as African and other immigrant communities of color through advocacy, technical assistance, education, and research. Working with over 25 different ethnic community-based organizations throughout the area, we utilize a collaborative partnership approach to support the development and implementation of culturally and linguistically appropriate health programs and initiatives.



ARC’s goal is to shape and implement NIH’s All of Us Research Program strategy and roadmap to create culturally appropriate, cost-effective, and scalable education and outreach for Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders. PORT is a reporting tool and resource center for ARC partners to use in support of the All of Us Research Program.

Our Impact

Taking a leadership role, we have partnered with community-based, health, and government organizations to create and establish resources for people to learn about health issues facing their populations, health insurance enrollment, screening opportunities, and access to life-saving care.
