South Asian Health Foundation Profile
What does the South Asian Health
Foundation (SAHF) do?
Health Promotion Campaigns
We go directly into our communities across the UK and give talks in community centres to educate our people about common diseases. The talks are given by healthcare professionals (often in mother tongue) so they can answer any questions you may have.
Healthcare Research in South Asians
Just being of South Asian origin makes you more likely to suffer from common diseases such as HEART DISEASE, STROKE AND DIABETES.
Research into health and services available to South Asians could be better. We wish to facilitate research to find out why this is, and perhaps avoid many deaths in our communities.
Make Sure South Asians Get the Right
We also aim to highlight advances in research in the conditions that affect many South Asians and use this to influence medical care.
How does SAHF meet its Goals?
We have developed a community education programme that includes lectures, films and leaflets.
Act as a Pressure Group
The SAHF acts as a pressure group to make sure South Asians get the right medical care. We do this by providing authoritative information to policy makers.
With the help of our Patrons and the National Heart Forum, we represent South Asian communities to the Chief Medical Officer, funding bodies, Government health committees, and ministers.
In this way we are able to raise important issues.
Promote Scholarship and Research
We host seminars and meetings to educate healthcare professionals, regularly publish vital and informative literature for academics, healthcare staff and the public, to keep the important issues in our communities in the public arena.
