HEALTH CARE ACCESS:
El Junquillo does not have access to a local health center so community members must travel about 1.5 hours on foot to the nearest center in Goascarán. This health center in Goascarán is known as a CESAMO, which is the larger of the two different types of health centers provided by the government. It is usually staffed by at least one doctor and several nurses. Should a visitor to the health center require more medical attention than can be given at the center, community members can travel to the hospital in San Lorenzo.
