Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander Health Interview Survey

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have launched the Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander Health Interview Survey, which is the first-ever large-scale national health survey to collect detailed health information for Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (NHPI) households. The information will be collected through the National Health Interview Survey, and is meant to assess health needs and to improve understanding of the health concerns faced by this community.
