Access to health in rural areas was strongly affected by having an increased budget to combat Covid-19, limiting resources for providing care of doctors in other health problems. To this we must add the limitation of not having public transport, that made it impossible for a sick person to go to the center health of the urban area. Therefore, Paz y Bien found a way in order to continue with the Rural Health program, through which a doctor or a team moved to the communities to carry out the necessary checks and delivery of medications as needed.
