National Latina Health Network
At the National Latina Health Network (NLHN) we are working to educate communities and close health care gaps. We are the premier non-profit organization dedicated to developing and strengthening networks of Latina leaders in public health, and building local and national community health partnerships. Based in Washington, DC, we represent more than 1,500 Latina professionals across the continental US and Puerto Rico, and youth-serving agencies.
NLHN’s mission is to address critical health concerns affecting Latinas and their families. We promote leadership, advocacy, community health partnerships, and initiatives through which education and outreach efforts help foster well-being and healthy behaviors and attitudes within the nation’s Latino communities.
NLHN’s programs—culturally appropriate and value-based—empower young Latinas to take control of their health and their futures…to make informed decisions about the most intimate aspects of their lives.
