Medical Centers

Thanks to the incredible generosity of our fans and the great work of the OneWorld Health we have opened two NEEDTOBREATHE Medical Centers. The beautiful people of Nicaragua are receiving quality, affordable healthcare in the cities of Tola and Jinotega.

Tola, Nicaragua

We opened our first medical center in partnership with OneWorld Health in 2017. It was an exciting and emotional experience watching the people of the community walk through this brand new medical facility knowing that there's now a place of hope and healing accessible to them. We are so thrilled that the people of Tola will now have access to quality, affordable healthcare for generations to come.

A CLEAR NEED

Over 50% of Tola’s area is considered to have high levels of extreme poverty, with many people earning less than $2–$3 per day. In Tola, the one small public health clinic has no imaging services, no laboratory services, a limited pharmacy, and no medical specialists. There are very few private medical services available, with nearly no private doctors, few dental services, only one private laboratory, and just a handful of pharmacies.

Jinotega, Nicaragua

A big part of the reason we make music is to inspire people and an extension of that is our work with OneWorld Health. We are incredibly grateful to be able to take the platform that we have and point a spotlight on something that we really care about. Opening our second facility in Jinotega was overwhelmingly joyful. Out of all the achievements we’ve had, our partnership with OneWorld Health is the most we are proud of and Jinotega is a big part of that.

A CLEAR NEED

Nearly 60% of Jinotega is considered to have high levels of extreme poverty, with many people earning less than $2–$3 per day. The one small public health clinic has no imaging services, no laboratory services, a limited pharmacy, and no medical specialists. There are very few private medical services available, with nearly no private doctors, few dental services, only one private laboratory, and just a handful of pharmacies. These limited services mean that anything but the most basic cases get referred to the crowded regional hospital, which can be several hours away from many parts of Jinotega’s rural areas depending on transportation availability.
