May 2024 Monthly Calendar of Activities - DETAILS

South Asian Health Information Services (SAHiS)

This program was launched by South Asian Centre of Windsor to increase awareness about the common health issues affecting South Asian communities in Windsor. 

  • We provide information and access to health care services in the community such as finding a physician who speaks their language and understands their culture. 
  • We carry out research on the emerging needs within the South Asian community and the findings of the study are used to develop culturally and linguistically appropriate health education resources for the community and the health care providers.
  • We collaborate with a wide range of community groups, faith-based organizations, policy experts and academic institutions to address and advocate for health inequities that impact South Asians and other racialized communities.
  • We organize outreach initiatives, forums and health fairs to bring the community together and to enhance well-being of individuals, their families and the community of Windsor.
