HEALTH CARE ACCESS:
The community of Llano Nopo currently has a health center attended by a doctor and a nurse. When there is only a nurse available and a community member needs to see a dentist, they must travel to the nearest town with a full health center where doctors and occasionally dentists are on staff. Visitors to the health center can expect long wait times given the limited staff and resources to meet the demand from all neighboring communities.
Global Brigades is working on the implementation of the Holistic Model in Llano Nopo but has not yet begun with the Medical Brigades program. Now in the planning phase, mobile clinics and Community Health Workers training will start as soon as feasible.
