Over 80% of the world’s population lives within 5 miles of a coast, but far too many communities still live in remote poverty without access to basic health care. Poorly charted waters and rugged terrain, political factors, social disenfranchisement, poor health knowledge, poverty and lack of infrastructure separate these communities from care. The Floating Doctors medical team was formed to answer these challenges to accessing health care.
Founded in 2011, Floating Doctors is a nonprofit organization that has been building a permanent, sustainable rural health service and community development assistance program in Panama. They deploy mobile clinics by boat, packhorse or on foot to remote underserved areas, where they conduct ongoing health services and community development projects. Floating Doctors programs cover thousands of square miles of jungle-covered mountain and mangrove mazes in which we are often the only medical, dental or veterinary service available.
