Global Brigades is working on the implementation of the Holistic Model in Altos de Jesus but has not yet implemented Medical Brigades. Global Brigades is currently training CHW’s in the community to support patients in need of medical support.
Altos de Jesus is located in the Comarca Ngabe-Bugle, and celebrated its transition with Global Brigades in December of 2020. Community members have access to credit through an established and thriving community bank which will support continued investment in local businesses and home improvement projects for families within the community. People in Altos de Jesus are primarily dedicated to agriculture and the sale of artisanal crafts. The community is on the wait-list for eventual Holistic Model implementation as part of Global Brigades’ strategic plan in Panama.
