Organization : Compañeros En Salud, Mexico

Compañeros En Salud (CES) is a Partners in Health affiliated organization that started working in Mexico in 2011 and now operates out of 10 rural public clinics in the Sierra Madre mountains of Chiapas one of the most marginalized regions in the country.

Our goal is to improve staffing and supply of the clinics, and link them to more specialized care in hospitals outside the communities.

CES recruits Mexican physicians entering a required social service year to staff clinics. The first-year physicians, or pasantes, receive supervision, mentorship, and training from our staff.

This comprehensive support and training program helps build Mexico’s next generation of social justice physicians. CES also manages community health workers who visit patients with chronic illnesses, such as diabetes and high blood pressure.

The workers, called acompaňantes, help patients better understand their conditions and adhere to medications.
