In Hawai'i and the United States, Pacific Islanders have carried a large burden of illness and death due to COVID-19 despite making up only a small fraction of the total population.


In this PSA, Kokua Kalihi Valley (KKV) encourages all of our island communities to continue to be watchful and adapt to the challenges presented by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Our families, cultures, and futures remain at stake. We will emerge stronger and whole by supporting everyone in these islands, especially those most vulnerable.


Kokua Kalihi Valley is a federally-qualified health center located in O'ahu, Hawai'i. Since 1972, KKV has been working in partnership with the community and land, to protect the health and wellness of Kalihi and Hawai'i. Mahalo to Hawai'i Community Foundation & We Are Oceania for their support to develop this
