These communities are some of the poorest in the area with the highest barriers to healthcare access, so bringing care to them makes a huge difference.

One of the centerpieces of our community health programming is the mobile clinic initiative, which we hold in rural towns that lack easy access to healthcare. Some are held in towns within a day’s visit, and others require overnight stays. These communities are some of the poorest in the area with the highest barriers to healthcare access, so bringing care to them makes a huge difference. We hold one mobile clinic every month (12 annually). Program costs include purchase of medication, food and transportation.

Lately the roads to reach these communities have been getting in terrible conditions complicating the access to them and increasing the costs of transportation since the risk is higher than before for anyone who drives to these destinations. This year we want to be able to start a file for every single patient since the families that we assess remain the same, they are not planning to move and we agreed that it will be convenient for them to have a medical record so we can actually measure our results and improve their health for good based on family history and medical records.

This project will fund the transportation costs, medication for these communities and all the items we need to start creating a file for each patient we assess through the year (approximately 1000 patients per year or more).
