Our Goals

  • In partnership with local community leaders, educators and health promoters, we will create preventive and therapeutic health systems and clinics consistent with local culture and traditions, and that are sustainable over time.
  • We will promote local self-reliance and resilience by fostering the use of locally available, sustainable materials to avoid reliance on inaccessible and/or expensive supplies from the outside.
  • We will assist in the development of clean water systems that are critical to health maintenance.
  • We will work with the Universidad de la Amazonia Peruana in Iquitos to develop a new system of dental outreach that includes rural communities.
  • We will work to ensure that our systems and models can serve as reproducible templates for other organizations.
