Ethnic Health Foundation

http://www.ehfl.org/
Ethnic Health Foundation was founded in 2002 to engage the Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) communities in training, health improvement and disease prevention. The formation was occasioned by issues around general health of BME communities, particularly African and African-Caribbean population. The charity aims to promote any purposes for the benefit of the public, in particular, but not exclusively, for the benefit of people of African and Caribbean descent, including refugees and asylum seekers, without prejudice.
