Monthly Report from Bolivia: News from La Paz


In La Paz, thousands of children struggle to survive every day because they have no access to medical care. Our Street Doctors are there for the children and look after their wellbeing in three mobile surgeries. The teams, consisting of doctors, dentists and paramedics, offer physical and psychological help free of charge, enabling many patients to receive the care they need every month. They not only help street children, but also visit prisons and schools, as well as families living in extremely poor conditions. Treatments and check-ups are offered and preventive measures are carried out.

Patient numbers for March 2024

A total of 1481 people received medical treatment from the team in La Paz in March.
