Bilwas Outreach

This is a very successful program designed to improve the health care in ten villages along the Rio Cocco region by training health care leaders in each village under the direction of health providers from the Moravian Clinic. Partners in Health has been
Involved with providing diagnostic equipment for the health leaders.

Many years ago Dr Peter Haupert and Andy Herriott created an outreach program to improve health care in this rural area. It has resulted in lowering infant and maternal mortality as well as significant improvement in treating pneumonia and diarrhea. They have contributed a significant amount of money to this project over the years. Recently David Haupert and Jennifer Herriot have assumed the responsibility of this project because of Peter Haupert’s passing.
