Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander Survivors of Intimate Partner Violence and Human Trafficking: Health Center Preparedness Before, During, and After Emergencies

Developed in collaboration with Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organizations (AAPCHO) and Health Partners on IPV and Exploitation, this educational brief focuses on equipping health centers (HCs) with the necessary tools and knowledge to support Asian Americans (AA) and Native Hawaiians/Pacific Islander (NH/PI) survivors of Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) and Human Trafficking (HT) during natural disasters and public health emergencies (emergencies). Structural barriers, language access, and lack of culturally responsive organizations often leave these survivors vulnerable. This educational brief provides insights and strategies for HCs to prepare and respond to support AA & NH/PI survivors.
