wrote on the SABA North America Sections: Health Law wall: SABA Health Law Section Participation on National Council of Asian Pacific Americans (NCAPA) In 2016, the Health Law Section joined the National Council of Asian Pacific Americans (NCAPA) Health Committee as an organizational member. NCAPA is a coalition of national Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander organizations striving for equity and justice by organizing our diverse strengths to influence policy and shape public narratives. The NCAPA Health Committee meets regularly to discuss developments in health policy and issues of particular relevance to the Asian Pacific American community that member organizations may want to join in mobilizing efforts to address. For example, at the October 31, 2017 meeting Committee leadership noted that the funding for the REACH program (Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health), a national CDC-run initiative to reduce racial and ethnic health disparities through grants to organizations to local, culturally appropriate programs, has been cut to 0 (from ~$15 million) in the most recent budget passed by Congress. Through NCAPA, the Health Law section signed on to a letter this summer opposing the potential harm that the Graham-Cassidy health care bill would have caused to immigrant communities’ access to health care. While SABA is a non-partisan organization, through NCAPA and other initiatives the Health Law Section will aim to stay connected to the broader health policy community and seek out issues of relevance to the South Asian community that Section members may find important to address.
