Access to Health Information and Resources

Accessing health information and resources is a multi-faceted process that community members in Barrio Obrero experience differently depending on factors such as age, occupation, and socio-economic status. These factors determine the ways in which this information and these resources are attained. The following photo essay depicts community members of all ages engaging in activities, lectures, and treatment that are intended to promote their well-being. Additionally, the photo essay illustrates the process community health leaders undergo in disseminating accurate health information and providing resources to residents, as well as the role the local healthcare system plays in creating both individualistic and structural change. Collaboration between community leaders, educators, and residents has fostered an open environment that promotes the distribution of and access to health-related resources.
