Sacred Valley Health believes health and education go hand in hand. For this reason we seek relationships with organizations that can foster growth of our programs and aid our communities. We work with several universities to provide medical, nursing, and public health opportunities. Additionally, we welcome qualified volunteers for long-term placements. If you or your organization is interested in exploring a relationship, please contact us.
Ayni Wasi: Ayni Wasi is the Peruvian counterpart organization of Sacred Valley Health. SVH operates its programs in Peru via Ayni Wasi.
Awamaki: Awamaki is a non-profit weaving cooperative in Ollantaytambo, where SVH is based. Awamaki works with local women weavers to increase their skills and access to markets. Sacred Valley Health began as Awamaki Health, a branch of Awamaki, and they continue to work in close partnership.
Casa Mosqoy: Casa Mosqoy is a home for young people from difficult backgrounds. At the Casa, they learn life skills, such as financial literacy, while completing their secondary education. We provide occasional reproductive health education sessions.
Kausay Wasi: Kausay Wasi is a low-cost private clinic in the Sacred Valley about two hours from SVH’s base in Ollantaytambo. The clinic provides a large spectrum of care, including specialty campaigns, and a variety of lab and imaging services not available at government clinics in the area. The team at Kausay Wasi has generously shared its expertise in program development and the nuts and bolts of salary and insurance regulations, and well as the logistics of equipment importation.
Peruvian Ministry of Health: Sacred Valley Health (SVH) is partnering with the Peruvian ministry of Health via the 4 rural health outposts located in our catchment area. The Ministry of Health receives photos of all SVH community health workers and is regularly briefed on the SVH curriculum and Community Health Worker (CHW) capabilities.
Socios en Salud: Socios en Salud, the Peruvian arm of Partners in Health, have generously shared their time, expertise, and community health worker (promotora) training curriculum with us. We have visited their centers, met their promotoras, and learned about how they operate in partnership with the government. We are grateful to the Socios leadership for their ongoing counsel and for sharing their educational materials and best practices.
University of Washington Department of Global Health: The University of Washington Department of Global Health Immersion Program provides volunteer medical and public health staff to support the production of evidence-based curriculum.
