Community Health Needs and Resource Assessment: An Exploratory Study of Filipino Americans in the New York Metropolitan Area

Conducted by New York University’s Center for the Study of Asian American Health (CSAAH), this study examines the health issues concerning the Filipino Americans residing in the New York metropolitan area. Among the issues discussed in the study are the Filipino Americans’ health status and health-seeking behaviors, health care barriers, health resources, and best approaches to meet their health needs. The study also includes an extensive review of published medical and public health literature on Filipino Americans.

CSAAH, as part of the New York University Institute of Community Health and Research, conducts research, training and outreach programs intended for Asian Americans in New York in partnership with community-based organizations, governmental agencies, healthcare institutions and other academic centers.


FASHA Report

The Filipino American Senior Health Assessment (FASHA) was initiated by the Filipino American Health Initiative of Chicago (FACHIC) to evaluate specific health needs of the Filipino senior community in Chicago and to guide implementation of targeted health education programs and interventions. Our findings have been presented at several conferences including the University of Illinois at Chicago School of Public Health Minority Health Conference and Society of General Internal Medicine Regional Meeting. FASHA findings will eventually be presented in a community health forum and has been used to develop programming and apply for funding for FACHIC’s future programs.


Operation Mango Report

A Chicago-based taskforce named Operation Mango was established in January 2001 by a diverse group of Filipino American individuals who, from both personal and professional experiences, witnessed the need to address and document the most urgent, social and psychological needs of this rapidly growing community. The initial mission of Operation Mango is to become more informed of the community’s needs, with the hope of developing a strategic plan that would address these needs within the Chicagoland area.

The Operation Mango Report was released online in 2005.
