Community Health Center

 

health

Community Health Centers are strategically located in the poorest areas surrounding the city of Huancayo. The health centers provide basic but essential health care to the underserved. In addition, the health centers organize public health campaigns which aim to teach people about preventable diseases. The goal is to provide the necessary knowledge residents to then prevent sicknesses from ever occuring. Most Community Health Centers offer services in the following fields: general medicine, emergency care, obstetrics, pediatrics and dentistry. Typically the Health Centers also have onsite pharmacies.
Volunteers with professional medical training (medical doctors, dentists, nurses, pharmacists, emergency medical technicians) in their native countries are welcome to assist in the hands-on patient care. The clinics are often understaffed so any extra help that can be provided is very welcome.
