COVID-19, Health Equity, and the Asian American, Pacific Islander, and Native Hawaiian Communities: A Workshop

Authored by

In December 2021, the Roundtable on the Promotion of Health Equity of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine convened a two-day public workshop on how the COVID-19 pandemic has uniquely affected the Asian American/Pacific Islander/Native Hawaiian communities. The workshop explored the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and hate crimes targeting Asian populations on their health and wellbeing, including vaccination and testing participation rates, mental health consequences, and lessons learned from the long history of bias against the AA/PI/NH communities.
