Colombia

Our Work in Country

One of the world’s largest internally displaced persons populations, difficult terrain, pervasive poverty, and vulnerability to disasters pose numerous barriers to improving health in Colombia. 

 

Americares through its on-going partnership with the Colombian Order of Malta brings access to medicine and medical supplies to some of the country’s most remote and under-served communities, reaching more than 50 active sub-recipients.  

 

Americares is operating four medical clinics in Colombia to provide essential primary care services and access to medicine for migrants fleeing the humanitarian crisis in Venezuela. The clinics, located near the Venezuelan border, are established in coordination with the Colombian Ministry of Health and are offering primary care services at no cost for children and adults six days a week through August 2019.
