This description of Jaime Ibacache-Burgos's work was prepared when Jaime Ibacache-Burgos was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2008.
Jaime Ibacache-Burgos is developing a new health model in Chile that responds to communities’ specific needs according to their environment and culture. His Salud Colectiva (Collective Health) method promotes integration and equality between those who receive treatment, those involved in health delivery, and the greater bio-medical community. In this way it strengthens communication between local health practitioners and medical experts, while respecting the cultural practices and autonomy of local populations and ultimately ensuring that health delivery is people-centric.
