TEAM Africa is a culturally targeted health engagement and education campaign designed to promote wellness, and connect the District’s ethnically diverse African communities to vital health services. Since its successful launch in February, TEAM Africa has been promoting wellness and health resources to District residents through a social media campaign, and roving workshops on health literacy, mental health and nutrition delivered in multiple languages within diverse community-based, faith-based and hometown association contexts throughout the city. The TEAM Africa health education campaign is part of the DC Mayor’s Office on African Affairs’ Outreach and Education Program initiated in partnership with a 13-member TEAM Africa Coordinating Committee made up of DC government representatives, health professionals, community-based organizations and health advocates.
