Fraser Health Authority
South Asian Health Report
This report provides Fraser Health planners, decision makers and community stakeholders with valuable information on the health of Fraser Health residents of South Asian descent. The report includes statistics on health behaviours, health status and health care access, and examines the health impact of social and economic factors, such as education, income and area of residence.
This report contributes to the evidence that guides the South Asian Health Institute (SAHI). SAHI was established at Fraser Health to improve health and health outcomes for the South Asian population through innovation and evidence-based care. By highlighting gaps in health and socioeconomic indicators, the report supports SAHI and its partners to identify targeted areas for improvement and promote culturally relevant services to improve the health of our South Asian community.
