Through a feminist vision, we promote women’s integral health and gender based violence prevention. Based on the conviction that when women prosper, their communities are strengthened; an integral look is promoted to the full development of women’s potential, creating work strategies with Loíza’s communities to open doors for the construction of collective power.

Some of the strategies used by Taller Salud to promote women's health, peace and development are:
Your Peace Matter: Focused on the prevention and reduction of gender based violence in all its different manifestations, this project uses a methodology of cultural competence to address the specific needs of Afro-descendant women in Puerto Rico.

  • Psychological and psychosocial services are offered for gender based violence survivors.

  • Centered on trauma review and collective healing.
    Circle of women: gender based violence survivors participate in activities that lead to collective discussion and healing processes.

  • Vision: empowered and healthy women can advocate, organize, and consolidate community leadership.


Promotoras (Community Health Workers): Taller Salud is responsible for identifying and training, through popular education, women over 18 years of age with the interest of increasing their capacity to respond to the health needs of their own communities. A promotora always has an interest in learning, believes in social justice and the dignity of the human being.

The education of each promotora focuses on:

  • Dignified health care and community health promotion

  • Women's sexual and reproductive health

  • Violence against women

  • Afro-descendants, inheritance and legacy


Sexual health projects: Based on the changes that occur from childhood to puberty, our girls and young women receive through Taller Salud the sexual and reproductive education which is not provided by the State.

Some of the topics include:

  • Anatomy

  • Menstrual / vaginal care

  • Self-concept: who they are and what self-care they can provide themselves

  • Sexual rights education and consent

  • Violence prevention and healthy relationships between young people
