What We Do
Sacred Valley Health promotes health in the underserved rural communities of Peru’s Sacred Valley. We train community health workers (promotoras de salud) who serve their home villages, providing health education and basic care. They also identify, accompany, and advocate for patients who need to seek more advanced care at a government clinic. We also partner with university groups who visit the Sacred Valley to bring onsite health campaigns to remote mountain communities.
Sacred Valley Health seeks to complement and strengthen, rather than to replace, the clinical services provided by the Peru’s Ministry of Health. Our promotoras develop working relationships with personnel at the nearest government clinics in order to increase community members’ access to services.
