About Cotacachi Health Chapters

Cotacachi Health Chapters is a not-for-profit, volunteer-staffed organization of expats designed to support and educate the expat community about health-care and preparedness for medical treatment and emergencies. We are here to help you gather the resources you need for your own medical and emergency planning. Organized neighborhood groups are called Chapters. Depending on where you live, you may be able to join an existing group or start your own. We encourage expats to develop a support network that can help in the event of a serious medical condition or emergency. We can provide you with the forms and ideas for how to organize your group. We offer workshops, lectures, and presentations dealing with health care issues.

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—for free—to the entire expat community.

Why become a member of Cotacachi Health Chapters?

Our goal is to provide information to help Cotacachi expats deal with health care issues. Your annual membership dues supports the costs of maintaining the website and allows you to use the medical equipment that has been acquired, rent-free. If you believe in the goals of the organization, please become a member now. We value your support in helping expats be better prepared to deal with health care and end-of-life issues.
