HELP US GET MUSLIMS 
ENROLLED UNDER 
HEALTH COVERAGE!
Health insurance coverage is especially important in the American Muslim community. Many Muslims do not have employer provided health insurance; in fact 20% are self-employed, 29% are under-employed and 17% are unemployed. 

In January 2014 , American Muslim Health Professionals (AMHP) launched the “Connecting Muslims to Coverage” campaign. In a span of 3 months, AMHP hired seven Community state leads and fostered relationships with 81 partner organizations that collectively hosted 119 enrollment events and reached over 27,000 individuals resulting in 1,600 successful enrollments. 

Our communities need help in connecting to coverage but in order to continue such a massive outreach program, AMHP will need the funding necessary to cover all costs associated with the next round of Connecting Muslims to Coverage. We need your help to succeed!
