About Us

The Immigrant Health Access Project (IHAP) understands that language and cultural barriers are two of the main issues that prevent the immigrant community from receiving health care. The provision of culturally and linguistically appropriate services is critical to address disease-specific treatment. These services are also critical to establish prevention programs to low income immigrants and refugees.

Resources

Goal

•    Providing information and referral to community resources and collaborating with other agencies.
•    Creating workshops and presentations on how to navigate the health system and health related topics.
•    Coordinating services between Guildford Community Care Network (GCCN) partners, specialty care, & clients.
•    Providing interpretation, translation, and on-sight translation to clients and providers.
•    Assisting the community with case management related to health, economical, and social issues.
•    Providing workshops & presentations to agencies and providers about multiculturalism, language barriers, and the latest information about population trends.
