In August 2011 the local government opened Health Office in Huanchaquito, similar to "COPC" (Clinic for Outpatient Care), in order to look after the health of the population in Huanchaquito, as people used to have to walk long way to Clas Huanchaco for medical/health services.
The Huanchaquito Health Office provides basic medical services to around 300 people and the very tight budget, it works from (just 200 soles a month) allows them to afford only 4 part-time employees. This makes it hard for them to provide adequate healthcare for the local population. The mission of the Huanchaquito Health Office is to promote, protect and guarantee good health and life quality for the local population through a great and warm service. They work according to human values, respect and trust, with their main objectives being toadequately serve the local population as well as encouraging community participation in order to reduce death rates and statistics. With the aid of interns, Huanchaquito Health Office aims to reach out to a larger population and ensure more contact with the community through family visits, outreach work and public campaigns. Interns will be involved with helping to promote and maintain the effective, warm and efficient services provided by the Huanchaquito Health Office.
