Mano a Mano’s new health clinic in Catariri is now more than 70% complete! Our counterpart Mano a Mano Bolivia began construction on October 13th and it is progressing well, with an expected completion date of March/April 2024. When complete, this clinic will join Mano a Mano’s network of 183 clinics in Bolivia that had 605,760 patient visits in the first half of 2023.

Community of Catariri

Catariri is a community in the municipality of Aiquile, province of Narciso Campero, department of Cochabamba; it has a population of 1,250 (with a total of 3,500 people in the surrounding communities) and is located 155 miles southeast of the city of Cochabamba.

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 Catariri and municipal government of Aiquile that are involved throughout the process; and US funders that are providing the seed money that make this project possible!

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.
