Learn about our organization, and how we can help your community
African immigrants often do not prioritize preventative health, though chronic conditions like high blood pressure and diabetes are prevalent among them. Many have limited English proficiency and are afraid to seek help concerning their health.
The African Community Health Initiatives (ACHI) is here to help.
The African Community Health Initiatives' mission is to support and improve the health of Africans living in Massachusetts by promoting access to quality, culturally competent health and social services through education, research and community partnerships.
Our vision is to build a healthy African community with access to quality health and social services.
1. Improve access to and utilization of health and health-related services for people from Africa.
2. Work with healthcare and social service providers to promote and improve cultural competence.
3. Promote research by ACHI and other research organizations aimed at identifying the health issues affecting the African community.
4. Identify and mobilize resources to achieve the goals of ACHI.
Any person of African origin who lives in Massachusetts.
A member is anyone who is interested in promoting ACHI’s mission and registers and participates in scheduled ACHI meetings, events, and activities.
