Cotacachi Health Chapters

Welcome to Cotacachi Health Chapters

Cotacachi Health Chapters is an organization of expats designed to support, help, and educate the expat community about health-care and preparedness for medical emergencies.

  • We are organized around small neighborhood groups, called Chapters.
  • We offer workshops, lectures, and presentations dealing with health care issues. Members receive discounted admission.
  • A major focus is our website which provides information about hospitals, clinics, laboratories, doctors, specialists, translators, ambulance services, taxi drivers, and alternative health-care practitioners. This website is available to the entire expat community.
