Grameen PrimaCare (GPC) runs a health promotion program, Grameen Promotoras (GP), to promote healthy living and empower low-income, immigrant communities using a community health worker (Promotora) model. Grameen America borrowers in the Bronx, Jackson Heights, and Charlotte, North Carolina are provided with the following services and support:

  • Weekly health and well-being educational workshops delivered by the Promotoras
  • Access to bilingual, caring, and confidential community health workers
  • Assistance with health system navigation, including referrals to existing community resources and local organizations
  • Access to blood pressure, HbA1c, and other biometric tests

In addition, GPC operated a pilot primary care and health promotion program, Grameen VidaSana (GVS), for immigrant women primarily from Queens, New York, who otherwise had little to no access to comprehensive, affordable and quality health care. The GVS program ran from September 2014 through July 2020.
