South Asian Health Foundation

About us

The aims of the South Asian Health Foundation (SAHF) are to:

1. To promote improvements in the quality of, and access to, healthcare and health promotion in South Asians.

2. To promote research that leads to the above objectives

The SAHF carries out health promotions campaigns directly with communities and healthcare research in South Asians. Being of South Asian origin makes you more likely to suffer from common diseases such as HEART DISEASE, STROKE AND DIABETES. We wish to foster continuing research to find out why, and perhaps avoid thousands of deaths in our communities. We also aim to highlight advances in research in the conditions that affect many South Asians and use this to influence medical care.

The SAHF works closely with organisations such as the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), the Department of Health, the British Heart Foundation and Diabetes UK. We aim to 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
