Description

NLHN History

Created in 1989, the Latinas: Partners for Health (LPH) project began with the formation of a 30-member group of Latina professional involved in public health. Its purpose was to develop a structure and strategies to educate and involve Latina leaders in HIV prevention. The core group of members expanded to over 1,500 women nationwide with six regional coordinators and community collaborative networks composed of state/local health department officials, front-line providers and professionals in the field of health, education, medicine, business and the media. To better reflect the growth and program expansion, led to the establishment of the National Latina Health Network (NLHN) in 1997.
