Binational Health Week (BHW) has become one of the largest mobilization efforts in the Americas to improve the health and well-being of the underserved Latino population living in the United States.
During BHW, federal and state government agencies, community-based organizations and thousands of volunteers come together annually in the month of October to conduct a weeklong series of health promotion and health education activities that include workshops, insurance referrals, vaccinations and medical screenings.

BHW main partners include the Secretariats of Health and Foreign Affairs of Mexico and the Health Initiative of the Americas, a program of the University of California, Berkeley, School of Public Health.
The Forum is intended to bring together decision makers from both Mexico and the United States, offering a space for discussion to facilitate closer ties, future cooperation and developing courses of action to enable the implementation or strengthening of public policies, to benefit the health of Latin American migrants in the United States.
Considering the major health problems afflicting the U.S. Latino population, as well as the challenge for its attention, the following topics will be analized:
- Chronic diseases (Diabetes, Obesity)
- Infectious diseases
