Program

BRAC's development model is a holistic approach in which microfinance provides the basis for BRAC's entry into a community. Building on this platform, BRAC rolls out additional services that impact the community beyond its borrowers. The family members of microfinance clients and other members of the communities BRAC serves participate in the health, water and sanitation, agriculture and livestock and poultry extension services BRAC provides. For example, BRAC trains selected borrowers to act as Community Health Volunteers (CHVs). These trained CHVs visit families throughout their communities. They sell basic health products and provide training about the prevention and management of diseases like HIV, tuberculosis and malaria. They also encourage members of the community who they identify as having conditions that require treatment to seek attention at the nearest clinic or health facility.
