Global Brigades is working on the implementation of the Holistic Model in Barrial Blanco but has not yet begun with the Medical Brigades program. Now in the planning phase, mobile clinics and Community Health Workers training will start as soon as feasible.
Barrial Blanco is located in the Province of Comarca Ngabe-Bugle and Global Brigades began working with community members in March 2021. 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 Barrial Blanco are primarily dedicated to agriculture and trading. Global Brigades is currently working with Business brigades in Barrial Blanco and the community is on the wait-list for eventual Holistic Model implementation as part of Global Brigades’ strategic plan in Panama.
