AAHI was formed in Fiscal Year 2005 with a mission of addressing the unique and neglected health needs of Asian Americans in Montgomery County. The prevalence of significant health disparities in the Asian American community, particularly for health concerns that can lead to cancer, osteoporosis, hepatitis B, diabetes, tobacco use, heart disease, and mental health requires increased health services for Asian Americans at both community and systems levels.
AAHI’s programs, projects, and activities are framed around four Core Priority Areas: Community Engagement; Community Empowerment; Capacity Building; and Change Catalyst.
The projects and activities highlighted in “About Our Work” are just a sample of AAHI’s efforts. For a more comprehensive overview, AAHI invites you to view their most recent Annual Report in the AAHI Resource Library.
