Papa Ola Lokahi has completed the update of the 1986 E Ola Mau (EOM) health needs assessment and is calling it E Ola Mau a Mau.

Papa Ola Lokahi and the Native Hawaiian Health Care Systems were established as a result and they continue to work to improve the health and well-being of the Native Hawaiian people.

Learning Objectives:
1. Review the findings and outcomes of the 2018 E Ola Mau a Mau report.
2. Summarize progress made since 1985 in improving the Native Hawaiian Health.
3. Discuss the recommendations and strategies to improve Native Hawaiian health and well-being (Mauli Ola).

Youth Council Training, Rally and Legislative Meetings – more details coming soon!

We listen, learn and fight for policy change that communities want.

Perspectives on Community Health

We’re in the community!

Every penny you contribute stays right here in Hawai‘i.

The tobacco industry spends more than $25 million each year in Hawai‘i marketing their products to kids while sugary drink manufacturers pay fitness bloggers and researchers to promote diets that include soda. These industries care about one thing and one thing only: profit. That’s where we come in. We, and our coalitions, work every day to stop them in their tracks. We shine a light on their bad acts and we fight for policies that promote health for all Hawai’i residents and visitors. Your gift allows us to do more… and it is tax-deductible!

Are you a like-minded non-profit in need of help?

We know that there can be serious obstacles to get a cause, campaign or program off the ground. At HIPHI, we have years of experience and can help in a number of ways, from fiscal sponsorship and management to meeting and conference planning. Contact us to find out more.
