Organizational records of the Asian/Pacific Islander Tobacco Education Network (APITEN) document the work of central office
staff in San Francisco and outreach to communities in promoting tobacco education, prevention, and cessation programs targeting
Asians and Pacific Islanders in California through conferences, outreach, and technical assistance programs.
The Asian/Pacific Islander Tobacco Education Network (APITEN) was founded in 1990 by the Asian & Pacific Islander American
Health Forum, with continued funding from California Proposition 99 (the Tobacco Tax and Health Promotion Act). The network's
goal is to "promote the sharing of resources among tobacco education, prevention and cessation programs targeting Asians and
Pacific Islanders in California." Its member organizations are community-based organizations, county and local government
health agencies, and voluntary organizations. APITEN funds projects submitted by these organizations through its "Mini-Grants
Program" each fiscal year. With a diverse staff and membership throughout California, APITEN serves Asian and Pacific Islander
populations in more than 40 languages.
