The Jaco Beach Public Clinic, known as Ebais, located in Garabito Canton in Puntarenas Province, launched a campaign for cancer detection.

According to Social Security, the campaign will be held at the Centro Cívico por la Paz (the Peace Civic Center) in Jaco Beach. 

Medical services will be provided from Aug. 28 to Oct. 26, from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Health workers aim to provide a full range of medical tests to detect breast cancer, prostate cancer, Leukemia, lung cancer and colorectal cancer among others.

Clinic workers will contact patients, based on their registration information, to set up medical appointments. However, residents of Jaco Beach, including foreigners with DIMEX residency card, with pending this type of test can obtain more information about the medical campaign by visiting the clinic information office.

This is one of many mass medical services campaigns launched by public institutions this year. Recently, a massive medical services campaign was held in Guanacaste.

This is a handful of non-emergency medical service campaigns that Social Security has launched to reduce waiting times for medical appointments. The campaigns attempt to catch up on all non-emergency services put on hold during the height of the pandemic from 2020-2022.

What other mass medical services campaign should Social Security launch?
