Global Brigades is working on the implementation of the Holistic Model in Chichica 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.
Chichica is located in the Province of Ngabe-Bugle and started working with Global Brigades in September of 2019. 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 Chichica are primarily dedicated to agriculture and cattle raising. The community is on the wait-list for eventual Holistic Model implementation as part of Global Brigades’ strategic plan in Panama.
