The mission of AAA Fund is to promote the health and wellbeing of the entire AAPI community. Included in that mission is a focus upon the access to timely, quality, affordable health care. AAPI communities face cultural and linguistic barriers that may discourage or prevent access to health and mental health care. Asian Americans with limited English proficiency have difficulties in understanding the U.S. healthcare system and communicating with healthcare providers.
