Native Hawaiian Health Centers


Native Hawaiian Health Centers receive Native Hawaiian Health Care Systems Program funding (through the HRSA Health Center Program appropriation) to provide medical and enabling services to Native Hawaiians.

Native Hawaiian Health Centers improve the health status of Native Hawaiians by providing access to health education, health promotion, and disease prevention services. Services provided include nutrition programs, screening and control of hypertension and diabetes, immunizations, and basic primary care services.

The program is authorized by the Native Hawaiian Health Care Act of 1988 (42 USCS§11701).
