Grameen PrimaCare is a non-profit organization that provides a high-quality, affordable primary care and health promotion program to immigrant women. Through our efforts, we are creating a transformative model that can foster a culture of health and engender a more equitable health system.
Our first pilot program, Grameen VidaSana, launched in New York City. VidaSana, which means “healthy life” in Spanish is our ultimate goal for our members.
By capitalizing on the highly successful Grameen “group model,” and combining it with a comprehensive approach to healthcare, we provide our members with access to enhanced primary care services, a wellness center, health tools and a combination of discounted services.
Our second pilot program, Grameen Promotoras, launched in the South Bronx in September 2016. Our “Promotoras,” the Spanish term for “community health workers,” provide Grameen America borrowers with basic health screenings, health system education and navigation, preventive health education, physical activities, and peer support.
The Grameen Promotoras program hopes to improve the health and well-being of participants by increasing their knowledge surrounding health-related topics to benefit themselves, their families, and their businesses.
