Evaluating a Lay Health Advisor Model for improving sexual and reproductive health outcomes for Latino youth and adults in Wisconsin
Return to Listing
Latino families face significant barriers to information about and access to preventive reproductive and sexual health care. Institutional and social barriers, personal health beliefs, and a lack of culturally competent services can place Latinos at a greater risk for adverse health outcomes, including unintended and teen pregnancies, sexually transmitted disease, HIV infection, and breast and cervical cancer. To reduce health disparities, it is imperative to increase access to culturally competent and effective preventive health care.
Through this project, partners aim to evaluate the implementation of a Lay Health Advisor Model and inform understanding on how to reduce barriers to replication in other areas of the state in order to improve sexual and reproductive health outcomes for Latino youth and adults in Wisconsin.
