For healthier, more empowered communities
APCA advocates for culturally competent healthcare and provides resources and services helping Arizona’s Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander communities to be safe and healthy.
Serving Arizona’s fastest-growing community
Since 2002, APCA has been meeting the health-related needs of Arizona’s fastest-growing segment: Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander families and individuals
We champion health access so that all Arizonans have meaningful, culturally competent and linguistically appropriate healthcare they can afford.
APCA is committed to ensuring that Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders and Native Hawaiians in the Greater Phoenix area have health insurance and access to high-quality, affordable healthcare. With our team of trained, certified and multilingual Navigators and Community Health Workers, we help people find and enroll in insurance and connect to culturally competent services in their local community.
APCA also promotes preventive health services with no-cost community education workshops and science-based information resources on important health issues in our community such as diabetes, mental health, Hepatitis B, childhood and adult immunizations, and more.
Healthcare Coverage and Care
Our trained Navigators assist families in finding, enrolling in and using affordable health insurance—as well as help them keep their coverage. Navigators also help people find qualified, culturally competent providers and primary care services.

Education & Resources
Our Community Health Workers lead workshops and provide in-language, science-based information on topics impacting Arizona’s diverse communities, including:
- Vaccines and immunizations
- Diabetes prevention and healthy nutrition
- Hepatitis B prevention and treatment
- Cancer screening and awareness
- Mental health
APCA recruits and trains community health workers to build an emerging AANHPI community health workforce that is qualified, culturally competent and multilingual.
Community Health Workers serve as a source of connection to the community, providing support as people navigate their health and healthcare needs.
Through comprehensive analysis and reporting, we help ensure each group within our diverse communities has improved access to care.
APCA advocates for comprehensive data collection, analysis and reporting at national, state and local levels to ensure our communities are visible and well represented.
