By harnessing technology, the aim is to provide timely access to expert medical advice and services, transcending geographical constraints and connectivity issues. This integration enhances healthcare delivery and fosters compassionate care, ensuring individuals receive the support they deserve.


"As we witness the program's impact firsthand, we envision its expansion across Peru, playing a pivotal role in shaping the future of healthcare delivery and positively impacting countless lives," added Casabonne.

As we embark on this transformative journey, we remain committed to empowering all citizens, supporting healthcare equity, and addressing the evolving needs of Peru.
