    "The National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) is pleased to provide Capacity Building for Diabetes Outreach: A Comprehensive Tool Kit for Organizations Serving Asian and Pacific Islander Communities. This tool kit was designed to help community-based organizations and community health centers develop organizational capacity to deliver diabetes prevention and control programs within Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities. NDEP was founded in 1997 by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. It is jointly administered by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), with support from more than 200 partner organizations. From its inception, the program has sought to develop tools and resources to help reach audiences at higher risk for diabetes, including Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. We continue to plan and execute media relations and outreach campaigns to get important information directly into the hands of people with diabetes and those at risk for the disease. This comprehensive tool kit, developed in collaboration with the NDEP Asian American/Pacific Islander (AAPI) Work Group, is an important step forward. It provides tools and resources to help you take advantage of NDEP's existing diabetes awareness and educational materials. In addition, where appropriate, it helps you create new materials and programs that you can share with individuals in your community. Newly formed organizations that are working to hire staff, obtain funding, and assess the health status of their communities, as well as older, long-established organizations, can use this tool kit to expand their reach and effectiveness in their communities. This tool kit addresses eight key components for capacity building--community assessments, evaluation, organizational support, staffing, building coalitions and partnerships, funding, community outreach and inreach, and marketing. Other resources are provided throughout this document and in the appendices. Each section includes quick tips, case studies, definitions, and examples that will help clarify many concepts." --p. vii
