Yapacani, Bolivia (Medical, Dental, Surgery)

WHEN
Jun 5 2021 - Jul 19 2021
WHERE
Yapacani, BO
MMI sent our first medical team to Bolivia in 2003, and North American volunteers with MMI continue to support the MMI Bolivia project leaders and team today.
Surgical, Medical, and Dental services are usually provided in clinics in the region, and surgery is performed at the main hospital. This project provides patients with the opportunity to have access to a surgery in their own community for an affordable cost.  Surgical procedures often include reconstructive plastic, orthopedic, hernia repair, thyroidectomy, cholecystectomy (open), lipoma resection, hysterectomy, C-section, ventral hernia, carpel tunnel, and other general surgical and OB/GYN procedures. Our Dental Care Program provides a variety of services including fluoride treatments, sealants, dental cleanings, extractions, and restorative procedures on most our projects. Primary Care services include consultations, lab procedures, filling prescriptions, parasite treatments, sonograms, audiology screening, ear cleanings, and wellness checks. The team will be staffed with North American volunteers, MMI Bolivia, and involve local staff.

Participants are expected to fundraise on behalf of Medical Ministry International to help raise the funds necessary to cover the budgeted costs of the Project Teams. These fundraising goal minimums include accommodations, meals, travel insurance, and malpractice insurance. Air fare is not included.

We have implemented rigorous biosafety, patient management, and project team safety protocols in response to COVID-19. Agreement to follow protocols will be required as part of the online application process. Project planning is ongoing for all 2021 programs. Project status will be confirmed 90 days prior to departure based on current information as Medical Ministry International monitors the global impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
