Providing Health Education is a Critical Component of Our Health Programs in Bolivia
A critical component of Mano a Mano’s health programs in Bolivia is to provide health education: to communities through weekend health clinics providing basic services; to Mano a Mano’s clinic staff through continuing health education workshops; and to medical professionals from other organizations. These programs are managed and administered by Mano a Mano Bolivia, and serve a complementary role to the construction of community clinics throughout rural Bolivia. In 2022, Mano a Mano Bolivia hosted 17 health education workshops for 1,032 attendees.
