IPS Clinton Rabb

imgThe clinic in Brisas del Mar, IPS Clinton Rabb, provides essential health services to the 3000 people in the villages of Brisas and those around it - comprising an exam room, a labor and delivery room (also used for minor surgery), a dental office, a pharmacy, and a room for overnight stays.
 
The next nearest health center is 14 miles away by dirt track - a journey which can take over two hours in rainy conditions, and which is usually only passable by motorbike. If the residents of Brisas are fortunate to make the journey successfully, they are often denied access due to the discrimination that is rife against indigenous and black people.
