Training Promotores de Salud in HIV Prevention in Rural Latino communities: A Train-the-Trainer Curriculum (Spanish)
Promotores de salud, or community health workers, are a proven mechanism to reach Latinos in rural areas. Poder Sano has developed a comprehensive Spanish-language train-the-trainer curriculum for individuals interested in training promotores de salud in HIV prevention. The curriculum is based on popular education techniques, and is culturally competent and linguistically sensitive.
The curriculum consists of five modules: The Role of Promotores, Sex and Sexuality, HIV/AIDS Prevention, HIV Testing and Treatment and Best Practices for Outreach. A unique feature of this curriculum is that in addition to the five core modules, it contains extra booster sessions to support promotores de salud in their continued learning and self-reflection. The curriculum also contains in-depth background information for the trainer.
