Pacific Islander family

The Health Department analyzed health and social data for Pacific Islanders living in Multnomah County. The report, Health Disparities among Pacific Islanders in Multnomah County - 2015 (2.7 MB), highlights that members of the Pacific Islander community experience serious disparities in areas critical to leading healthy, happy and productive lives.

The Health Department worked closely with the Pacific Islander community to produce this report, the first of its kind specific to this community.

We are committed to addressing these serious disparities, and have identified several strategies that hold promise for improving the health and happiness of communities of color in Multnomah County.
