Halbert RJ. 1997. The health status of Asian and Pacific Islander Americans in California. Woodland Hills, CA: California Endowment and California Healthcare Foundation, 82 pp.
This document, one of a series of five publications on the health status of minority groups and whites in California, focuses on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. The report first defines and describes this minority group and then identifies and analyses major features of health status. Other sections of the report examine barriers to accessing quality care including financial, language, cultural, structural, and systemic, and also enabling dynamics, such as geographic clustering, ethnic specific networks, communities strongly influenced by local and national leaders, emphasis on extended family, and international relations. Future projections for this minority population and recommendations for policy, service, research, education and training, and leadership conclude the report.
