What We Do


Pacific Islanders continue to face disparities in health conditions, behaviors and access. Health providers and other organizations often lack the resources, knowledge, and culturally and linguistically appropriate programs and services to serve these communities.

To address this need, the PI-CoPCE Planning Group has identified Four Pillars or strategic focus areas to improve the health status and access of Pacific Islanders in the United States, Hawaii, and U.S. Pacific: Primary Health Care Support; Data, Research and Evaluation; Workforce Development and Support; and Community-Based Organizations Training and Technical Assistance.

Pillar I: Primary Health Care Support

Improving access to linguistically and culturally appropriate primary health care services and programs for PI communities.

Pillar II: Data, Research and Evaluation

Increasing PI-specific health data, program evaluation, and research.

Pillar III: Workforce Development and Support

Creating, sustaining, and retaining a primary care workforce that will meet the needs of PI patients in the United States and U.S. Pacific.

Pillar IV: Community Organizations + T-TA

Assisting PI-serving community-based organizations in their delivery of primary care services in support to community health centers.
