South Asian Health Support Program

Ethnic minorities coming from worldwide contribute to 5% of Hong Kong’s population.  However, many South Asians in Hong Kong are ignorant about health information and services available.  Owing to the low socio-economic status and lifestyle, many of them are susceptible to illnesses and chronic diseases.

With the funding from the Community Chest, UCN set up the ‘South Asia Health Support Programme’ (SAHP) since 2007 with a mission to improve the health of families and children of South Asian minorities by promoting health through maternal education and training of lay health advocate volunteers.
