Community Health Workers (CHWs), known in Spanish as Promotores or Promotoras, are uniquely qualified to offer support and provide health information in hard to reach communities, because they often share the same socioeconomic background, language and culture of the members who live within them. Across America, organizations are turning to CHWs to integrate information about health and the health care system into their community’s culture, language and value system, thus reducing many of the barriers to accessing health services. These resources were created to provide information about the variety of health topics CHWs can help address. All resources are available for free and licensed to be distributed for educational use.
The 146-page English-language Promotor(a) de Salud Manual offers an overview of basic health issues. We have placed focus on prevention, early detection, and referral. We hope this manual will serve as a key resource to support your health outreach. We all have different areas of health knowledge; each chapter contains resources and links to enhance your individual needs.
Fresh fruits and vegetables, portion control, and knowledge around nutrition are essential to maintaining a healthy diet. These brochures, created by MHP Salud and Hebni Nutrition Consultants, Inc., were designed to help Hispanic and Latino Communities build nutritious plates with familiar fresh foods. Inside you will find information on portion sizes, nutrition facts, and tips to help individuals adopt healthier eating habits.
Training for your organization, made simple.
In addition to publishing resources and conducting our own Community Health Worker (CHW) programs, MHP Salud offers a variety of training and consulting services to help organizations create and optimize their own CHW programs. When we provide these services, we put our 35 years of experience to work to enhance your organization’s services and improve your overall reach. Does your organization employ Community Health Workers? We can help.
