AWFH is a peer-led, community-based network dedicated to advancing Asian women’s health and wellness through education, advocacy, and support. We envision a world where Asian women are well-informed, have access to culturally appropriate, quality care, and are inspired to live happy, healthy lives.
We focus on education, advocacy and reciprocation. We provide culturally linguistically appropriate information and training to dispel myths, increase health literacy and improve health communication. We also work on policy at all levels to push for disaggregated data and support equitable funding for impacted populations. And lastly, we foster a nurturing environment for collaboration, connection and capacity-building.
Our commitment is to: To develop a pipeline of Asian female leaders as peer health educators, advocates, and community researchers; To connect community members, service providers, and policy makers; To catalyze change and promote health equity; To honor our cultural heritages and nurture each other by lifting spirits, inspiring leadership, and sharing stories.
