We will keep working together to build a future where no one fears violence , and all can live in safety and prosperity . With the pandemic disproportionately affecting communities of color including AA and NHPIs , the Department of Health and Human Services ( HHS ) has become a vital hub for the Biden - Harris Administration ' s work to provide relief and care to these underserved communities . The linked Fact Sheet provides an overview of the Department ' s efforts to promote the health and well - being of AA and NHPIs . In a snapshot , HHS agencies have:Administered COVID - 19 vaccines and booster doses to millions of AA and NHPI community members . Provided significant funding to health care entities and organizations serving AA and NHPIs to aid their response to COVID - 19 . Relaunched and reinvigorated the White House Initiative on Asian Americans , Native Hawaiians , and Pacific Islanders ( WHIAANHPI ) and the President ' s Advisory Commission on Asian Americans , Native Hawaiians , and Pacific Islanders , as directed through Executive Order 14031 .
