Dear COHI Community,
The news of the loosening of social distancing and safety rules could not have come at a better time - with summer just around the corner, we're antsy to get outside and let the sun hit our chins!
It's also great timing for our partners in Puerto Rico, who have been running mobile clinics and telehealth medicine for the past year. This news means that we are able to move ahead with our work to open a permanent birth clinic and midwifery training school.
As Puerto Rico continues to recover from a decade of disasters and economic devastation, the healthcare system is working to rebuild itself. This provides us with an opportunity to inject the infrastructure with women's health workers who are trained in providing respectful, culturally literate, and high quality care. Health workers trained at our partners' clinic.
But we can't make this a reality without funding, without help from people like you. Will you join us in working towards a more equitable healthcare system for the people of Puerto Rico?
