AANHPI Lactation Directories

Together with BreastfeedLA and the Asian, Southeast Asian, and Pacific Islander (ASAP!) Breastfeeding Task Force of Alameda County, the Asian Pacific Islander Breastfeeding Task Force (APIBTF), is conducting a nationwide landscape analysis of lactation resources available to Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) communities. 

As part of this project, we seek to compile and create a resource directory to share publicly on the APIBTF website in order to increase access to existing supports in AANHPI communities. We are conducting a survey of professionals who identify as AANHPI and/or work with predominantly AANHPI communities to determine what lactation resources are available for them.  Even if you don’t provide support to AANHPI families, we ask that you share with your colleagues who might.

If you provide support for birthing and lactating AANHPI families, we invite you to complete this survey and/or share it with your colleagues. Responses to this survey will help inform future projects focused on increasing access to lactation support and resources.

The survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. Your responses are confidential other than information voluntarily provided for the AANHPI resource directory.
