Historically, research specific to the health of Asian Americans and of Pacific Islanders has been without focus and significant financial support. Available data on any Asian American and Pacific Islander subgroup have tended to be cataloged the broader Asian American and Pacific Islander category without more extensive specificity. Subsequently, clinicians, insurance companies, public health practitioners, and policy makers have had few opportunities to make evidence-based decisions for these subgroups. More recently, as Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders have become one of the fastest growing and most heterogenic ethnicities,1 this lack of available data has prevented the establishment of health objectives specific to this population. To gather pertinent Asian American and Pacific Islander health data, support necessary research, and administer successful interventions, medical leaders should establish and promote a national Asian American and Pacific Islander health agenda.
