HEALTH CARE ACCESS:
El Jute is a community located in the department of El Paraiso. The community does not have access to a local health center, which means that community members must travel to the nearest one in Teupasenti. It takes about 1 hour 45 minutes to get to the health center on foot and around 30 minutes in a vehicle. The health center in Teupasenti 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. Dental care is also available to community members. Should a visitor to the health center require more medical attention than can be given at the center, community members can travel to the hospitals in Tegucigalpa either by bus if they can afford the fare or on foot.
