Nicaragua developped a rather nice free system for heath,but many very little villages were rather far from the hospital,so nurses had to go there because the long way walking was impossible for mothers with babies.
So we had to weight,vaccunate...,give a lot of informations about prevention.
Not a good point for this nurse smoking while working..and i am a bit responsable....
cigarettes where rare,(usa blocus),so giving some foreign cigarette was a kind of "communication" usefull for working together.

Patrick: though your flash may have gone a little overboard here, this is just the kind of TE material that counts. There are myriad stories and contextual references here and the picture definitely DESCRIBES the place. It's a good post... regards, c

This is a good look at history and shows us that we have not done enough in the last 20 years to eliminate these types of scenes for some reason. I can't quite figure out why we have done such a poor job, but this type of hisorical look serves us as a good reminder.

Good history material from Central America as it looked 20 years ago...

Patrick your pictures of Nicaragua bring back memories of life during the FSLN era. I remember how hard life was back then for many families. Rationing of food and other essentials of life. I like the picture because it shows a fact of life for many people during the time. Health wasn't always available in small villages. It was tanks to the help of foreign doctors that many people was able to receive medical help. Nice picture.
Did you ever visited the city of Diriamba in Carazo?

beaucoup de tes image ont un sujet "santé" qui forcement m'attire comme dans ce cas.
Moi aussi j'ai un infirmier responsable du programme TBC trés capable et éveillé que j'ai surpris en consultation avec la cigarette.... mais il fait tellement bien son boulot que.....
Belle photo avec une excellente nettété si on pense qu'elle remonte à 1985.
