For Paraguay’s public health system, 2021 continued to be a very complicated year marked by the Covid-19 pandemic, despite the gradual improvement of the situation in relation to the previous year.

We would especially like to highlight the unconditional effort made by health professionals closely linked to the support provided year after year. Patricia Abed, Executive Manager, recounts some of the achievements.
