Global Brigades is working on the implementation of the Holistic Model in San Cristobal 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.
San Cristobal is located in the biodiverse region of Eastern Panama and celebrated its transition With Global Brigades in April of 2021. Community members have access to credit through an established and thriving community bank, which will support continued investment in local businesses and home improvement projects for families within the community. People in San Cristobal are primarily dedicated to agriculture and the sale of artisanal crafts. Global Brigades is currently working in San Cristobal and the community is on the wait-list for eventual Holistic Model implementation as part of Global Brigades’ strategic plan in Panama.
