Abstract

In this manuscript, we discuss critical health outcome differences between the 6 major Asian American subgroups (Asian Indian, Chinese, Filipino, Japanese, Korean, and Vietnamese) and highlight the critical issues that contribute to the Asian American health disparity gap. We also propose approaches to address these critical issues, with approaches shown effective in other populations.By considering these approaches, we hope that stakeholders of Asian American health outcomes can steer current health research agendas and efforts towards improving Asian health equity.
