MISSION: To promote health policies in Georgia that improve access to health services for Hispanic/Latino children and adults. VISION: To be the acknowledged policy leader in Georgia for building health equity for Hispanic/Latinos and for promoting collaborations with stakeholders supporting under-served communities. WHO WE ARE: The Hispanic Health Coalition of Georgia, Inc. (HHCGA) is a nonprofit organization created to promote health and social change in the Hispanic/Latino communities. We connect individuals with appropriate organizations and provide leadership and advocacy on health issues affecting the Hispanic/Latino communities. Because Georgia has the third fastest-growing Latino population of any state in the nation, HHCGA recognizes the need for increased awareness of health issues faced by the Hispanic/Latino communities. HHCGA continues to be a vehicle of information-sharing and networking that includes professionals working with Spanish-speaking clients from all sectors of health and human services in Georgia. Our program activities focus on strengthening the community by conveying cultural, linguistic and professional knowledge to organizations, advocating to improve access to services, and promoting new policies that protect the rights of Hispanics/Latinos for better health and improve their health access. We seek to empower the Hispanic/Latino community to achieve optimum health and well being, which in turn, improves the future for all citizens of Georgia.
