The goals of the HHS Promotores de Salud/Community Health Workers Initiative are to:
Promotores, also known as community health workers, peer leaders, patient navigators or health advocates, play an important role in promoting community-based health education and prevention in a manner that is culturally and linguistically appropriate, particularly in communities and for populations that have been historically underserved and uninsured.
The initiative is guided by a federal work group representing HHS agencies and coordinated by the HHS Office of Minority Health. A Promotores Initiative Steering of 15 promotores from various parts of the US regularly provides information to the Promotores Federal Work Group.
