We need your support.
Please help us sustain the Rafiki Wellness Passport Program, a results-oriented intervention with proven success. Your donation will help Rafiki make healthy outcomes possible for communities disproportionately impacted by chronic diseases. While the Passport Program does receive partial funding, Rafiki needs dollars to make sure that the program continues to engage and impact the community. Your donations will help us do that.
The Rafiki Wellness Passport Program is a 90-day culturally-affirming and wellness-centered intervention. Passport is comprised of five essential components: exercise, nutrition workshops, disease education, health screenings, and complementary and alternative medicine (acupuncture, chiropractic, reflexology, massage). As a result, participants achieve lower blood pressure, cholesterol, and glucose levels while developing healthier eating habits.

Welcome to Rafiki Coalition for Health & Wellness
The Black Coalition on AIDS has formally evolved into the Rafiki Coalition for Health and Wellness — reflecting a rich history of community service while embracing the changing needs of our community. Our commitment to HIV/AIDS remains strong. However, our new name better reflects our diverse service menu and our core mission, which is to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS and eliminate health disparities in San Francisco’s Black and marginalized communities. Rafiki Coalition strives to achieve this focus by providing health and wellness services including, but not limited to, transitional housing, health education, advocacy, health case management and other health-promoting activities.
Rafiki Coalition has been a pioneer since 1986 in providing health education, advocacy and services to San Francisco's Black community. We have accumulated the depth and breadth of experience to serve the local community as health and outreach needs continue to evolve.
Join us. Get involved. See what we have to offer to help you maximize your health and wellness.
