Abstract

"Buen vivir" through integrated health care: optimizing intercultural collaboration in rural areas in Ecuador. Ethnic communities living in Ecuador's SENPLADES zones 6-7 (Amazone and Andes region) have limited access to medical health care. Traditional health care is part of the daily life. There is little cooperation between medical and traditional caregivers. In this project we study the needs and the conditions which compromise intercultural health care in the communities, and provide concrete measures of effective implementation of intercultural integration, in the medical curriculum at UTPL and other universities, as well as for practitioners in the field. The project has 3 parts: A research part where gaps and needs of healthcare in the field are investigated and described. The second phase is an implementation study. The research is performed by a PhD student from UTPL Loja. A medical education part where the curriculum at UTPL Loja implements cultural competences and intercultural communication, use of portfolio and distance education. A capacity building part at UTPL with a Phd trajectory, staff training and scholarships exchange. A capacity building part in the communities with optimizing intercultural collaboration
