The South Asian Public Health Association (SAPHA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the health and well-being of South Asian communities in the United States through advocacy, collaboration, and communication. We strive to address the unique health challenges faced by individuals of South Asian descent through education, advocacy, research, and community engagement. Established in 1999, SAPHA gained formal recognition in 2001 as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and has marked many milestones in promoting the health and well-being of South Asians throughout the years, including the groundbreaking report, "A Brown Paper: The Health of South Asians in the US," in 2002, the publication of "The Health of South Asians in the US – An Evidence-based Guide for Policy and Program Development" in 2017, many successful webinars, publications and invitations to conferences and events, along with White House recognition. SAPHA operates with a dedicated team of volunteer Board members representing diverse expertise in public health, health disparities, mental health, clinical care, health policy, and disease control and prevention.
We do not have any open board positions at this time. Please check back in the fall.
