Forward, Not Backward: Uninsurance must continue to trend in a downward direction

A big barrier to accessing health coverage is uninsurance, or lack of coverage. Before the ACA was passed, certain Asian American groups, including Pakistani and Korean Americans, had some of the highest rates of uninsurance in the U.S. Among all Asian groups, those numbers have gone down.

Forward, Not Backward: Uninsurance must continue to trend in a downward direction

From 2011 to 2015, the ACA helped to expand coverage to Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders, with uninsurance dropping. Any changes that occur to the American health system need to ensure that more patients and communities, including underserved populations, get covered.

Screen at 23

More than half of Asian Americans with type 2 diabetes, and even more Asian Americans with prediabetes, are undiagnosed. To make treatment, intervention, and even prevention of diabetes possible, we need to first ensure that it is revealed. We need to call for appropriate screening practices for Asian Americans. We need to screen at 23.

Join our network and become a part of a powerful voice of AANHPI physician leaders. Become an NCAPIP Supporter or Affiliate and lend us your voice. We have achieved many successes because of supporters and affiliates like you. This year we have been successful in raising awareness of the high prevalence of diabetes within our communities. The AANHPI Diabetes Coalition, that we staff, brought a discussion of Asian BMI to national thought leaders and policymakers. We convened roundtable discussions to develop plans to eliminate health disparities and helped launched the first ever health assessment of the six Pacific Jurisdictions with a special focus on chronic diseases and diabetes.

In 2013, we began a long term partnership with the Association of American Medical Colleges. Over the next few years we are planning to launch workforce programs to support our medical students from underrepresented communities, increase the cultural competence of all future physicians and their capacity and commitment to address health disparities and practice in medically underserved communities, increase and develop AANHPI faculty and researchers engaged in academic medicine and much more.

We remain a strong voice in Washington, DC. Policymakers and the White House turn to us to better understand the impact of health policies and we bring your voice and your stories to them. We are brought to the table for discussions on key issues that impact physicians and the patients they serve. We are trusted leaders that bring a physicians voice to advocate on behalf of and with our patients.
