The Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander Network to Reach Equity in Tobacco Control and Cancer (ASPIRE) Network aims to build community capacity and facilitate the development of tobacco and cancer policy initiatives for all.
At ASPIRE, we are working towards social justice and equity-centered, healthy, tobacco – and-cancer – free communities. We want to ensure healthy equity centered living for all populations with a primary focus on diverse Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AA, NH, and PI) communities across the United States.
ASPIRE is 1 of 8 CDC national networks jointly funded by CDC’s Office on Smoking & Health and Division of Cancer Prevention & Control – CDC’s National Network Approach to Preventing and Controlling Tobacco-related Cancers in Special Populations
