This resource aims to illuminate some of the barriers faced by AANHPI elders, as well as recommendations for intervention and prevention. These learnings and recommendations were collectively developed by a multi-disciplinary think tank on elder safety and wellness convened by the Asian Pacific Institute on Gender-Based Violence and National Health Resource Center on Domestic Violence, Futures Without Violence. Think tank members drew from their experience working with AANHPI elders to develop the findings and recommendations presented. They are intended for any professional working with AANHPI elders, including Gender Based Violence (GBV) advocates, healthcare professionals, and Adult Protective Services, among others.
