About Pacific Alliance Against COVID-19
A Community-Driven Approach to Mitigate COVID-19 Disparities
in Hawaii’s Vulnerable Populations
The Pacific Alliance Against COVID-19 (PAAC) is formed by a multidisciplinary team of researchers at the University of Hawaii and the AHARO Community Health Centers. The collective goal is to expand testing in the community and empower educators, students and their families with COVID-19 education tools and more effective connections with public health services, especially those provided by the AHARO Community Health Centers, including the Waiʻanae Coast Comprehensive Health Center and the Waimanalo Health Center on Oʻahu, Bay Clinic and Hamakua-Kohala Health Center on Hawaiʻi Island, and Molokaʻi Health Center on Molokaʻi.
