About the Sehat Program

The Sehat Program

The Sehat Program stems from the South Asian Health Institute (SAHI) at Fraser Health Authority. SAHI aims to improve the health of our South Asian community through research and culturally relevant programs. Research has shown that South Asians are two to three times more likely to develop heart disease, kidney disease, stroke, and diabetes ten years earlier in comparison to other ethnic groups. 

The Sehat Program is a community-based outreach program that partners with South Asian places of worship, businesses and schools to improve the health and wellness of the community. The Sehat program engages, empowers and educates South Asians about how to make healthy choices to prevent chronic diseases.
