Fighting for a fair and equitable health system for everyone in our country is mandated by our faith. To serve others is one of the most beautiful ways to worship God and that is a guiding principle that we must remind ourselves when taking care of vulnerable members of society. Today, AMHP is the only membership-based national nonprofit with local chapters focused on empowering American Muslim health professionals seeking to advance public health, social justice, and health equity for all Americans. We are at the forefront of bringing together American Muslim Health Professionals to promote accessible, affordable and equitable healthcare for all Americans.

Our Story

For 15 years AMHP has responded to the public health crisis in America by protecting and improving the health of people in marginalized communities across the country. The concept of AMHP was developed by Arshia Wajid in Chicago Illinois in 2003. After completing her fellowship in Hospital Administration at Stony Brook University Hospital in New York, Arshia began to network for full-time job opportunities. It was during this time she came across the idea of starting an organization that connected Muslim professionals, students, and entrepreneurs working in diverse sectors of healthcare. In 2004, AMHP was established as a national non-profit primarily focused on professional development. With a growing healthcare crisis, AMHP leveraged the collective skill set and expertise of American Muslim Health Professionals to work on public health issues in America. Over the years, AMHP has accomplished many great feats that have garnered nationwide support with its work on affordable health coverage to the stigma around mental health issues to gun violence to homelessness to domestic violence, there was no shortage of issues that required our collective and dedicated attention. In 2016, we convened a National Interfaith Enrollment Campaign with over fifty partner organizations and in 2017, we hosted the first-ever National Interfaith Anti-Bullying Summit. More recently, we launched a series of Mental Health First Aid Certification training in various cities.
