HEALTH CARE ACCESS:
La Presa does not have its own health center, but travels to the nearby community, Agalteca, in order to get health care. There, the health center is a CESAMO, a larger scale health center where doctors and occasionally dentists are on staff. The health center is 12 kilometers away and medications are not commonly available. The most common illnesses are common cold, diarrhea, skin allergies, hypertension, and diabetes.
