To increase language access, a multi-disciplinary leadership team from Guam supported the adaptation of a safety card tool into Samoan as part of their work on Project Catalyst. The leadership team consisted of staff from the Guam Coalition Against Sexual Assault and Family Violence, the Guam Department of Public Health and Social Services, and the Pacific Islands Primary Care Association. To help develop this card, they collaborated with staff from the American Samoa Alliance Against Domestic & Sexual Violence, the American Samoa Medical Center and with staff from local health centers in American Samoa.
The Guam Leadership Team’s action plan included offering in‐person trainings to health centers and partnering community based programs across Guam as well as on other Pacific Islands—Pohnpei, Saipan, and American Samoa.
