    Centro Medico Humberto Parra

    Centro Medico Humberto Parra strives to improve the health and well-being of poor rural Bolivian communities.

    Centro Medico provides free primary healthcare, medication, health education and other health services to people who would otherwise not be able to afford them. The clinic works in partnership with the surrounding communities to enable them to lead healthy lives. Centro Medico is primarily staffed by volunteer American and Bolivian physicians and is entirely funded by private donations from Bolivia and the United States.
