According to data from the Oregon Health Authority, Pacific Islanders have the highest COVID-19 infection rate per capita in the state. Pacific Islander communities in Oregon see policies restricting healthcare access and a lack of culturally-specific resources as barriers to care. We talk about the work nonprofit organizations and local governments are doing across Oregon to bring resources directly to PI communities during the pandemic. Our guests are Manumalo Ala’ilima, co-founder and board co-chair of UTOPIA PDX and Joe Enlet, Consul General for the Consulate General of Micronesia and president of COFA Alliance National Network.
