RAISE NETWORK PROJECT
RAISE stands for Reaching Asian Americans Pacific Islanders through Innovative Strategies to Achieve Equity in Tobacco Control and Cancer Prevention. The RAISE Network is a health justice organization helping to prevent and reduce tobacco use and other cancer-related health disparities among the Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander population.
Many of these topics require urgent attention since cancer is the second leading cause of death among the AANHPI population. Further, AANHPI’s are disproportionately impacted by tobacco and tobacco-related deaths. Hepatitis B, liver cancer and cervical cancer also occur at a higher incidence rate among AANHPI’s.
