Short presentation

Presentation of the Promo Soins device which aims to promote the autonomy of precarious populations in their recourses to prevention and care.


The objective of the project is to promote the autonomy of precarious populations for prevention and care throughout the Provence Verte Verdon territory by improving their access to healthcare and rights while strengthening their capacity to make choices for their health and balance.

Contexte (territory issues, targeted audience)

The association "Provence Verte Solidarités" wanted to extend its Health Care Package to the whole Provence Verte Verdon region in order to reach precarious populations who have difficulty accessing healthcare in the villages. Traveling in the villages, health professionals, volunteers, carry out medico-social assessments, guide and help the mobility of people to go to places of care.

Target audience:
- Precarious populations

Actions implemented

This project aims to carry out a diagnosis of the health needs of precarious populations in Provence Verte Verdon (carried out in 2018 and released in early 2019). At the same time there is the setting up of permanences within the villages, with currently (August 2019) 3 permanences carried out a morning every two weeks (Rians, Saint Maximin the Sainte-Baume and Carcès).
For the diagnostic phase, 25 professionals and 48 precarious people responded to the questionnaires distributed. For the deployment phase of the hotlines, 21 people were accompanied in the first quarter of 2019 and 59 people were vaccinated.
Global cost (in Euros) : 95 938 €
