Creating Jobs for Bolivian Medical Professionals
Did you know Mano a Mano’s clinic program has created jobs for 467 Bolivian medical professionals (165 doctors, 226 nurses, 76 dentists)?
Every new clinic project that we complete (144 to date) includes at least 1 nursing position and has included up to 37 positions in our largest project (in Tupiza our hospital has 12 doctors, 24 nurses, and 1 dentist).
All of these positions are paid for as permanent line items by either the Bolivian Ministry of Health (81.8% of the positions), local Municipal governments in Bolivia (10.5%), or other organizations in Bolivia (7.7%); Mano a Mano does not pay any of these staff salaries.
This is one example of our partnership model that ensures that our projects remain in operation for years to come.
