HEALTH CARE ACCESS:
The nearest health center from El Ojochal is about 2 kilometers away in a community called El Coyolito. For many health needs, community members must travel about an hour away to a hospital in San Lorenzo. Since most people do not have vehicles, they must travel by a bus that comes to the community. Given the distance from the nearest health facilities, El Ojochal is a community that can especially benefit from the Community Health Workers Program.
