HEALTH CARE ACCESS:
Ipeti Embera is located directly off the Pan-American Highway in the Tortí District. The community’s clinics are hosted at the elementary school, located in the center of the community. There is a health post in the community, but it is not regularly staff. When brigades are not present, Ipeti Embera’s community members go to the Tortí Health Center for basic care. This health center is about 30 minutes away by bus once the community members have walked to the highway. The community’s path to the highway is rocky, unpaved, and without shade.
