#10158A - Providing family primary healthcare services in low income, urban and rural communities in Bolivia

Annual Goal:$80,000.00
YTD Gifts:$2,650.00
Partner:Evangelical Methodist Church in Bolivia

Describe the need affecting the community.

Limited access to and hopefully poor quality of available health services.

How will this Advance project help to address the need?

1)We manage government health facilities, providing the leadership, additional staff and administrative skills required to offer quality services to underserved communities. 2) We provide additional services not offered by government facilities. 3) In communities with no Government facilities, we provide preventive and basic curative services.

Describe the primary goal of the project.

To help provide over 50,000 people in rural and peri-urban communities in Bolivia with access to quality preventive and curative health care, reducing unnecessary suffering from illness and death.

Describe the change you would like to see in the community as a result of this Advance project.

Healthier children and women. Young people understanding how health can improve the future for themselves and their future families.
