In this isolated and war-torn region, Concern America’s community-centered health and leadership program trains community members from rural Afro-Colombian and Indigenous communities to provide health care services to 20,000 people previously without access to such care. This innovative and successful model engages the most valuable resource in every village: the people themselves. With a depth of knowledge, skills, and ability to provide health care comparable to the work of nurse practitioners in the U.S, HPPs successfully meet 80% of the community’s health care needs.
