2017 Santa Clara County Asian/Pacific Islander Health Assessment
Asian/Pacific Islanders comprise more than a third of Santa Clara County’s population. The goal of this assessment is to profile the health status of the largest Asian subgroup populations in Santa Clara County: Asian Indian, Chinese, Filipino, Korean, Japanese, and Vietnamese, as well as Pacific Islanders.
This report presents both secondary data and primary health survey data of Asian/Pacific Islander communities residing in the county. Findings from this report may serve as an important building block in the county’s efforts to address disparities in the Asian American/Pacific Islander community.
Korean Needs Assessment of the Bay Area 2014-2015
Health Research for Action UC Berkeley (HRA) and the Korean Community Center of the East Bay partnered on a Korean Health Needs Assessment (KoNA) study. They produced a Bay Area report and 7 policy briefs covering issues of limited English proficiency/health literacy, mental health, tobacco, intimate partner violence, civic engagement, cardiovascular disease, and women’s health.
The documents are available online from the website of the Korean Community Center of the East Bay.
Numerous community-based nonprofit organizations in the greater Bay Area serve Korean Americans. The list includes KACF-SF grantee partners as well as other Korean and broader Asian & Pacific Islander (API)-serving organizations, many of which also have Korean-speaking staff.
