Please join ADPH London as we celebrate South Asian Heritage Month. This webinar will be hosted by the ADPH London: Public Health Tackling Racism and Inequality Programme (PHTRI).

South Asian Heritage Month (SAHM)

SAHM seeks to commemorate, mark and celebrate South Asian cultures, histories, and communities. The month seeks to understand the diverse heritage and cultures that continue to link the UK with South Asia. South Asian culture has made a significant impact on Britain in various aspects, such as food, clothing, music, words and the overall ambiance of our towns and cities. It’s a beautiful display of the rich and proud South Asian heritage that has blended into the British way of life, contributing to the diversity of our nation. Observing South Asian Heritage Month provides us with an excellent chance to embrace and celebrate the history and identity of British South Asians.

Webinar presenters include;

  • London Boroughs of Westminster and Kensington & Chelsea – Breaking down the stigma of suicide through faith as a case study
  • London Borough of Harrow – The findings and reflections of a needs assessment looking at access to drug and alcohol services
  • The London Bangladeshi Health Partnership – The Journey, where we are now and future plans

Background: Supporting, Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities in public health

The London Association of Directors of Public Health, published a position statement in February 2021, supporting Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities during and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic. This statement highlights racism as a public health issue and it is vital that we take action to mitigate any futher widening of health inequalities.
