(Tartagal, Province of Salta, Argentina)

Within the framework of PAHO/WHO technical cooperation in Argentina, a Pilot Project began in late 2001 aimed at improving the quality of life of the indigenous peoples of the Chaco region. Given the success of this project, which received full communitysupport and involved a multitude of actors, the Chorote Community Project constitutes a living example of teamwork and on-site application of technical cooperation. Change, for the Chorote people, meant ceasing to merely dream and beginning to live a new reality, one that can serve as a model for other communities in the country and the Region who live under similar conditions. For more information, see the project fact sheet.
