The IFRTD Networked Research Programme on Mobility and Health
gathered important evidence about the 'mismatches' of the transport
and health sectors in bringing health services to the poor. There
were 24 case studies, seven of them from Latin America.
This year we went back to the Cenepa -one of the Peru case studies.
Three days travel from Lima by plane, road and river -one way- to
capture the Awajun faces and voices in videos and share their
mobility and health problems with the world. We hope that those who
take decisions and make policies listen to them and do what is within
their hands to change the lives of the Awajun and Wampis indigenous
population for the better. We invite you to visit:
