  • Contextualizing Maternal Health in Hawaiʻi

    Contextualizing Maternal Health in Hawaiʻi: Historical, Cultural and Social Determinants of Health for Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders

    Please join us for a virtual training provided by the Department of Health, Maternal and Child Health Branch. This webinar will address the historical, cultural, and social determinants of health for Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders. We will provide important context to the maternal health disparities that many of our public health professionals observe in their work. We will discuss the historical influences that have contributed to deep-rooted social inequities, discrimination, and biases that impact the health and well-being of NHPIs today. Finally, we will share recommendations for advancing health equity for these communities at the individual, program, institutional, and policy levels.
