MARTI Introduces New Latina Health Resource Initiative

Posted on 2/11/2016 2:59:14 PM

Mujeres Latinas en Busca de Salud is a new website created by MARTI as a resource to provide information on a variety of health-related topics that affect Latina women in the United States. The website was created as a part of a campaign to improve the health of Latina women in the United States by providing information to much-needed, yet commonly lacking, health resources.

New information is continually being added to the website. Currently, the site draws together links to resources and provides information on domestic violence and obesity. Forthcoming information will address additional health-related topics, including diabetes, asthma, depression, breast cancer, and osteoporosis, among others. Also to be included is information on resources related to sexual health, addiction, vaccines, and means of protection and rights in the workplace.

Information on what is currently listed can be found on the Mujeres Latinas en Busca de Salud homepage.
