CAHPE3 Network

Center for Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander Excellence, Empowerment and Equity (CAHPE3) Network aims to build community capacity and facilitate the development of tobacco and cancer policy initiatives for all. The CAHPE Network is 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 and NH/PI) communities across the United States, and the six U.S. Associated Pacific Island territories/jurisdictions.

CAPHE3 is 1 of 9 CDC national networks jointly funded by the CDC’s Office on Smoking & Health and Division of Cancer Prevention & Control to advance the prevention of commercial tobacco use and cancer in populations experiencing tobacco- and cancer-related health disparities. 

APPEAL is the fiscal sponsor and lead organization for the CAHPE Network. Our work is done in collaboration with our partners.


The APPEAL Repository is our premier searchable database for resources and promising practices to help our communities, nonprofit agencies, and policy makers. Here we provide case studies and implementation strategies to help our communities make a difference in policy and social justice change. We also link to articles and resources for advocacy success.
