Vision

CAHEP aims to serve the uninsured and underinsured Asian American Pacific Islander populations (AAPI) in Colorado and screen for chronic and infectious diseases in this population. CAHEP aims to contribute towards the elimination of health disparities while directly reaching out to the AAPI population of Colorado. The high risk individuals in such communities are best accessed by working with the community leaders, people of trust and medical experts who understand their own cultural assets and barriers. CAHEP aims to create and maintain a network of stakeholders and various AAPI groups working together in a culturally respectful framework in order to first understand the burden of a disease by evidence based screening and then reduce this burden by appropriate intervention. It is our endeavor to disseminate all relevant information on the web page and host numerous education articles at: www.cahep.org.
