Chiapas, Zapatistas, Indigenous, and Mexican guerrillas have been considered synonymous by many since the uprising in 1994.
This week Alive in Mexico speaks with Zapatistas involved with the construction of an alternative, parallel healthcare system for the indigenous. Some of the Promotores de Salud, or Health Promoters speak about their work teaching about hygiene and providing access to healthcare in remote towns and villages scattered around Chiapas State.
Alive in Mexico is produced by two Mexican correspondents, in collaboration with a team in the United States. Our work is viewer-funded. Please consider making a donation to support Mexican citizen journalists.
