is located in the Sacred Valley of the Incas in Coya, Peru. Since opening in 2005, the clinic has provided health care services to more than 320,000 patients, offering 9 distinct health services 7 days a week.
The Kausay Wasi Clinic employs innovative, culturally and linguistically appropriate strategies that break down barriers to accessing health care and eliminates disparities in the health status of the community. The ability to meet a patient’s health and social service needs in the language they are most comfortable communicating in, and adapting treatments to ensure cultural appropriateness, distinguishes the Clínic from other primary health care providers in the area.
Under normal circumstances, the majority of the Clinic’s patients would not be able to afford these services, however, at Kausay Wasi they are never turned away due to lack of funds, which is why donations are so important. Every year the demand for services grows, and thanks to the generosity and support from individuals and companies around the world, we can continue to expand.
The Clinic hosts between 12-15 visiting Volunteer U.S. Medical teams a year. Volunteer doctors have worked with Association Pro Salud Calca since 2003 and have operated on children with hearing difficulties, restored sight to elderly people blinded by cataracts, conducted orthopedic, cleft lip, palate, and reconstructive facial surgeries for burn and accident victims.
Gynelogical exams, x-rays, dental care, physical therapy, prosthetics, and general medicine are also available on a daily basis and pharmaceuticals are available at very low cost or provided free of charge to those who cannot afford to purchase them..
