Special Populations

HRSA Funded Special Populations

AACHC supports efforts to reach out to federally-designated special populations, which include migrant and seasonal agricultural workers, individuals and families experiencing homelessness, and those living in public housing. Some health centers receive additional funding to focus on ensuring these groups receive health services. Click on the links below to learn more about these special populations.

Other Special Populations

In addition, there are other special populations currently being served by health centers, and AACHC will support efforts to best serve these populations as well, which include gender and sexual minorities (GSM includes LGBTQ), elderly, veterans, persons living with HIV/AIDS, and school-based populations. If there are any other special populations in the state that may need specific considerations, please let us know, and we will do our best to find resources to help you better serve these populations.

Language Access


In partnership with the Arizona Department of Health Services Health Disparities Center, we have developed materials to make it easier for Limited English Proficiency patients to identify their language to providers, as well as make providers and patients aware of the patients’ rights.

 

Please visit this link to access “I Speak” cards, fact sheets, and a list of languages that providers can use.
