Replication of a community-based partnership to provide health education, outreach, and case management to urban Chinese and other Asia populations

Asians from China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Cambodia, Vietnam, and Laos comprise the largest and fastest growing segment of the immigrant population in the Philadelphia metropolitan area. The goals of this project are to successfully replicate in Philadelphia, New York Downtown Hospital's model of partnership between the Hospital and the Chinese community for improving the health of Asian populations, originally funded under the Foundation's Local Initiative Funding Partners Program.
