A new report by Multnomah County reveals a staggering health disparity for Pacific Islanders in Oregon. Oregon has the fifth largest population of Pacific Islanders in the country, but some are barred from receiving Medicaid. And those who are eligible often still can’t afford it. The US has a checkered history with Pacific Island nations, and those communities in general fly under the public radar. Alan Montesillo spoke with Kristina Narayan, who is a policy associate at the Asian Pacific American Network of Oregon. She explained the history behind the US relationship with Pacific Islands, and what is blocking them from getting healthcare today.
