American Muslim Health Professionals (AMHP) is a national nonprofit that empowers Muslim health professionals to advance public health, social justice, and civic engagement within their communities.
Over the years, AMHP has become a leading voice in mobilizing Muslims around public health issues, advocating for minority and underserved communities, and elevating the discussion on mental health. In 2017, AMHP hosted the first-ever National Interfaith Anti-Bullying Summit. In 2019, AMHP launched a series of Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Certification trainings and continues to provide this training virtually during the pandemic. Recently, AMHP has been at the forefront of the COVID-19 response and vaccine outreach efforts, including being a co-founder of the National Muslim Taskforce on COVID-19 (NMTF). In addition to developing educational resources on vaccines, AMHP coordinated two national webinars with Dr. Anthony Fauci to engage Muslim communities in the U.S. in discussions on COVID-19. In 2022, AMHP will expand its outreach with additional training sessions, advocacy, and toolkits.
