Our Medical Programs are a partnership between Solidarity Bridge and local hospitals and medical personnel in Bolivia and Paraguay.
Our four primary programs - General Surgery, Gynecological Surgery, Heart Surgery, and Neurosurgery - serve the poor year-round through local surgeons. Medical mission trips support these programs and focus on bringing US doctors and nurses to Bolivia and Paraguay to train and equip the local medical community to better serve their fellow citizens. Additionally, once a year, our Multi-specialty Medical Mission Trip brings clinical and surgical US doctors and nurses to heal those living in poverty in Bolivia.
Deformities and diseases that would have been cured at birth or never arisen in the U.S. are rampant among the people of Bolivia and Paraguay. Debilitating accidents are common and for many, our medical help is their only chance for a productive life or even survival.
See below how our programs are making a difference.
