Clinician's Guide  

This Clinician's Guide is a practical resource for medical providers who are confronted with basic cultural challenges presented by Asian & Pacific Islander (A&PI) patients living with HIV infection. Information is based on the direct experience of patients and the experience reported by providers who have worked with these patients.

This Guide responds to three questions:

  1. What cultural factors amplify the difficulties faced by Asians and Pacific Islanders with HIV?
  2. How do these cultural amplifiers affect a patient's access to services?
  3. What can a medical provider do to address language and cultural barriers and to help empower their Asian & Pacific Islander patients living with HIV?
