Resource Summary: The brief, Asian Patients Confront Multi Pandemics: Racism, Immigration, and COVID-19, is based on a KFF (Kaiser Family Foundation) survey conducted in-language of more than 1,000 health center patients at AAPCHO member health centers—Asian Health Services (AHS), International Community Health Services (ICHS), HOPE Clinic, and North East Medical Services.
Resource Details: The policy brief underscores the health and mental health challenges affecting Asian patients during the COVID-19 pandemic and the intersecting burdens, including anti-Asian hate and fears and confusion of changing federal immigration policies. In the brief, AAPCHO recommends that federal policymakers take action to address these multi pandemics.
