Chinese Health Initiative
We care about the emotional and physical health of all Chinese individuals, families, and children living in San Mateo County. When people work together, they can make a big difference to improve the overall health of our community. The Chinese Health Initiative was created in 2007 as a way to join people together who are interested in working to improve the health and well being of our Chinese community.
The vision of the Chinese Health Initiative is to:
- Help people learn about different health issues and services that are available, empowering them to make decisions about their health and the health of their loved ones.
- Advocate for services to be in the appropriate language and culturally appropriate, encouraging more people to seek services within their community, which can also help prevent disease before it happens.
- Work together with the community to increase outreach and referrals.
Help make a difference. Join the Chinese Health Initiative.
We encourage anyone interested in improving the health and well being of the Chinese community to participate. Whether you’re a County employee, contractor, community-based organization, consumer/client, family member, or someone who lives or works in the community, join us and help make a difference. See below for information about monthly meetings.
Chinese Health Initiative is funded by the Mental Health Services Act (Proposition 63).
