The Asian Health Coalition
Established in 1996, the Asian Health Coalition strives to improve the health and wellness of Asian, African, and other immigrant communities through advocacy, technical assistance, education, and research. Working with over 25 different ethnic community-based organizations throughout the area, we utilize a collaborative partnership approach to support the development and implementation of culturally and linguistically appropriate health programs and initiatives.
Over the past 22+ years, the Asian Health Coalition has developed hundreds of health programs and has made huge inroads to reach and educate immigrant and refugee populations. Taking a leadership role, we have partnered with health organizations and government entities to create and establish resources for people to learn about health issues facing their populations, enroll in health insurance, get screened, and get access to necessary life-saving care.
