HEALTH PROMOTION

Training of health champions to spread preventive medicine in the communities.

Building good health habits and learning how to prevent illnesses is the effective way to take care of health. Therefore, this program focuses on training community health champions who after participating in illness causes and prevention workshops, voluntarely give small talks to share their learnings with their relatives, friends and community neighbors.  

Fundación León XIII continuously trains more than 40 members of the health champions network in Los Altos de Chiapas.

In addition, we provide medical allophatic consultations at our Community Development Center in San Cristóbal de las Casas in partnership with the organization Sanando Heridas.
