ICHS partners with AAPCHO in multilingual messaging on COVID-19 safety

ICHS partners with AAPCHO in multilingual messaging on COVID-19 safety

The above image was part of a social media toolkit created by AAPCHO to help communities spread messages of COVID-19 safety during the pandemic.

International Community Health Services (ICHS) has partnered with the Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organizations (AAPCHO) in an effort to increase awareness for monolingual members of the Asian and Asian American community around the COVID-19 pandemic and safety measures that we must continue to take.

Earlier this year, AAPCHO provided its partners with a social media toolkit to reach underserved communities with in-language messaging. AAPCHO also created videos in Chinese and Vietnamese for community members to share.

ICHS also produced multilingual videos about why it's important to get the vaccine featuring ICHS providers Chona Lorico and Aliya Haq.

 

 

In September and October, ICHS also partnered with AAPCHO on the COVID-19 Virtual Youth Summit To Build a Healthy Tomorrow as a way to outreach to youth and youth-serving partners, which was important to inform future messaging on COVID-19. For the 150 youth who attended both virtual events, they were able to ask questions about COVID-19, learn from Public Health — Seattle & King County presenters, discuss issues about the pandemic in small breakout groups, and reinforce what they learned by playing educational Minecraft games designed by UW Minecraft Club.

These projects are supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) as part of a financial assistance award totaling $3,300,000 with 100 percent funded by CDC/HHS.
