Promoting and protecting the right to health for all
Over the past 15 years, Health Equity Initiatives (HEI) has committed to building a world where everyone is entitled to enjoy the highest attainable standard of health.
Our grass roots work focuses on refugees and asylum seekers
Through integrated and comprehensive core programs, we work to advance the right to health of disadvantaged communities.
Our Community Health Workers
Community Health Workers, hailing from different refugee communities, are at the core of all our programs.
Our Community Centre
HEI opened its Community Center in July 2008 – a space that has been created for use by the refugee community and NGOs who work with these communities. HEI’s mental health services are also located here. It is also equipped with a play area for children, mini library, and a “Take What You Need Corner”, where visitors can obtain day-to-day basic necessities on a needs basis.
