Welcome to Salud Entre Culturas

We offer holistic care to immigrants who find themselves in a situation of vulnerability when it comes to accessing the health system and public health programs.

Building bridges between cultures through health

We are part of the Association for the Study of Infectious Diseases (AEEI), a non-profit organization integrated by doctors from the Infectious Diseases Service of the Ramón y Cajal University Hospital in Madrid.

We fight against Chagas disease

We participated in large-scale screening for Chagas disease, a “silent” pathology that affects more than 40,000 Latino Americans in Spain who are not aware that they suffer from it.

We connect patients and health professionals through face-to-face interpretation

Our team of translators and interpreters provides face-to-face interpretations to connect non-Spanish speaking foreigners with doctors and health care professionals.

Informing new citizens about health

We organize workshops with immigrants to provide them with information on the diagnosis and prevention of sexually transmitted diseases and other infectious pathologies, as well as the use of the Spanish health system.

SALUD ENTRE CULTURAS will be at the “International Conference on Migration Health” in Rome presenting the holistic care program for immigrant population that we have been developing for more than 10 years.
