ARIMAE’S HEALTHCARE ACCESS:
The nearby town of Santa Fe has its own health center which is maintained by Panama’s Ministry of Health, MINSA (Ministerio de Salud). However, the health center frequently lacks a full pharmacy and the staff regularly lacks the capacity to see every patient each day. After traveling by bus, visitors to the health center can expect long wait times given the limited staff and resources to meet the demand from all neighboring communities.
The most common illnesses in Arimae are diarrhea, skin infections, vomiting, and colds.
