Mano a Mano formally dedicated a new clinic in the community of Ayoma on December 20th, 2022! Ayoma joins our network of 180 clinic projects in Bolivia, which had 559,439 patient visits in the first half of 2022. Every Mano a Mano project is a partnership: thank you to our counterpart organization Mano a Mano Bolivia, who oversees the process of building clinics from start to finish; the local community of Ayoma and municipal government of Cliza that are involved throughout the process; and Medical Educators For Latin America – MELA and US funders that provided the seed money that made this project possible!

Improving Access to Healthcare

With Mano a Mano clinics, they become part of the Bolivian healthcare system and are the official provider for their catchment area, making them eligible for services and reimbursement through Health Ministry-funded programs. All staff salaries in Mano a Mano’s clinics are paid for by sources within Bolivia. Our clinic program’s approach is that health outcomes can be dramatically improved with simple yet effective interventions, beginning with the basic ability to consistently access quality services in their own communities.
