Our Story

Kalusugan Coalition, Inc. (KC) was formed in 2004 when a handful of community members and health workers came together to respond to the fact that there were few wide scale initiatives that specifically address the Filipino American community’s health needs, despite the growing population.

Founding members organized a community health forum and conducted a community health needs assessment to begin the dialogue and documentation of Filipino New Yorkers’ priority health concerns.  Since then, KC has leveraged partnerships with various stakeholders including community advocates, faith-based organizations, public health professionals, health providers, community leaders, and researchers to build Filipino health initiatives.    

Through capacity building, health promotion, research, and advocacy efforts, KC  addresses the areas of cardiovascular health, breast health, health access, community development, and workforce development for community health workers.
