Promotores de Salud
Audience: primarily the Las Vegas, NV community
The Promotores de Salud Program at Planned Parenthood Southern Nevada was launched in January of 2010. Sometimes called lay health advisors or community health workers, promotores are community members trained to provide sexual health information and health resources in their communities, primarily in Spanish. The programmatic goal is to ensure everyone has the information they need to make responsible choices regarding their sexual health; including the importance of annual exams, family planning, and an understanding of how to identify and get treatment for sexually transmitted infections. Promotores use a peer education model sharing their knowledge with family, friends and neighbors through group presentations, “house parties,” and on one-on-one outreach.
This program can be delivered through a live virtual format.
