CBPR Match & Research

Research Projects Conducted by  AAFH Member Agencies

 

Due to the Asian Model Minority Myth, Asian Americans have not been the target of research studies. As a result, data on Asian Americans is very limited and not always disaggregated by ethnicity. Without sufficient data, there is little justification for funding specialized programs and services tailored for the Asian American community.

To contribute to this limited literature, AAFH member organizations have partnered with national and local organizations to conduct research, particularly Community-based Participatory Research (CBPR). Please see below for more information and recent research projects from AAFH members.
