All people deserve the same opportunities for health and wellness, but structural racism creates barriers to quality, culturally appropriate care for many. WellShare works with underserved communities in Minnesota and Africa to disrupt the cycle of generational poverty, disease, and trauma. Our community health workers lead programs that promote healthy living and reduce health disparities, things that support a brighter future for our communities.
We work closely with refugee and immigrant communities in Minnesota to develop culturally-relevant education and health services. Our community health worker model fosters local, sustainable solutions that address the root causes of health disparities and advance wellness for individuals, families, and communities.
WellShare International provides a wide range of community health services. When it comes to sexual and reproductive health, we provide education and support to Somali, Karen, and Hispanic community members through outreach, classes, sharing linguistically specific materials, and postpartum education.
