 OUR MISSION 

South Asian Health Action (SAHA) was formed in February 2017 as a charitable organisation.

 

We recognised that for a long time there was an inequality and lack of patient, carer and community engagement when it came to major health related issues such asdiabetes, heart disease and organ donation.

Therefore, SAHA was born from the desire to really make a difference and contribute towards raising greater awareness of such health issues, to empower individuals in knowing where to turn to get the right support they need.

 

As a national charity, we’re patient and carer led which means we really do listen, understand, and advocate the needs of our South Asian community from lived experiences.
