Mission Statement

The Asian Health Coalition (AHC) is a non-profit, community-based organization whose mission is to improve the health and well-being of Asian Americans through advocacy, technical assistance, and community-based research and education. Established in 1996, coalition founders included community leaders, health care providers, public health officials and research institutions, brought together to address the healthcare access barriers confronting Asian immigrant and refugee communities. AHC has cultivated strong relationships with Asian American organizations and associations to address areas of health disparity that affect Asian communities disproportionately.

Description

AHC is uniquely focused on pan-Asian health issues with a core competency in health program capacity building for Asian communities in Chicago. With a strong focus on systematic change and policy reform in health care, AHC’s successes are due in large part to its collaborative partnerships which bring cultural, linguistic, and practical insight to its efforts. AHC has established, maintained, and strengthened partnerships with over 25 ethnic-specific community-based organizations in metropolitan Chicago, serving Cambodian, Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, Lao, Japanese, Asian Indian, Filipino, and Pakistani communities. One of AHC’s core competencies is in the development and dissemination of creative best practices in service delivery for underserved Asian communities through the development and implementation of culturally tailored health promotion programs that address the unmet health needs of these communities in collaboration with community-based organizations (CBOs).
