In recent months, many questions have been raised about the efficiency and shortcomings of the IESS and public health system. Many are not aware of it until an emergency happens or you need a doctor in a hurry. Then, is it too late?
Ecuador has some excellent health care options. It is, however, best to plan for those. Do you have pre-existing conditions? Do you need a primary care doctor or specialist? What happens if you cannot communicate with a doctor in Spanish should an emergency arise? This Saturday, we are bringing together the experts in navigating health care in Ecuador. We will be sharing personal experiences and facts regarding health care options, that you should be aware of.
Join us at Kolo Bakery and Restaurant, this Saturday at noon. Reservations are required. This session will also be broadcast via zoom. Please contact us for the link. The cost is $5 per person and you will receive a voucher for $5 to be used at Kolo that day. The Newcomer’s Information Session is a service of Foundation Hogar de Esperanza and The Expats Services Center. Should you have questions you wish covered at this session or have ideas for future sessions or to make a reservation, please email us.
