HEALTH CARE ACCESS:
Casillas currently does not have its own health center. There are Community Health Workers present and they see patients once a month for check-ups. The most common health issues include diarrhea, intestinal and respiratory issues, colds, and occasionally diabetes. If medication is not readily available, the CHWs must travel to the clinic in Talanga for more medical supplies. The government used to send doctors and/or nurses to the community every month for health check-ups, but lack of funds has discontinued these routine visits.
