    Organizational History

    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.

    Scope and Contents Note

    The organizational records in this collection document the work of APITEN's central office staff in San Francisco, and outreach to communities throughout California, as well as Mini-Grant programs, conferences, and centrally-organized projects such as support for the California Smokers' Helpline. There are 8 series in this collection: Administrative Records; Press and Media Campaigns; Conferences; Membership; Youth Outreach; Mini-Grants; California Smokers' Helpline; Surveys, Focus Groups, and Polls. Where original order was discernible, this was preserved. Otherwise, an assumed order was imposed based on observed groupings.
