Enduring Solutions. Healthy Families. Sustainable Communities.
Partners for Andean Community Health (PACH) is the fiscal sponsor for the Ecuadorian non-profit clinic Fundacion Internacional Buen Samaritano Paul Martel (FIBUSPAM). PACH takes a unique approach to global health and development. Using the non-profit clinic model, we aim to establish sustainable continuums of care that empower local providers to address the most pressing healthcare needs in their home communities.
“Our organization is blessed to collaborate with many outstanding humanitarians. All of them represent PACH’s ideals of compassion, generosity and professional excellence.”
Partners for Andean Community Health (PACH) strives to improve access to healthcare and community
services for the people of the Andes.
We focus on healthcare accessibility and affordability for vulnerable communities
in Ecuador by empowering our local partners and leveraging the expertise, energy, and
resources of volunteers.
As a way to both support our work in Ecuador, have fun reading with your children and grandchildren, and open a doorway to Andean culture we offer a children’s book written by PACH’s very own founder and president, Paul Martel. Now available for purchase. The story, narrated by a loveable guinea pig named Max, introduces Andean South American culture through the symbols carved on an ancient Incan sculpture.
Originally founded as FIBUSPAM, USA, Partners for Andean Community Health has been working for over ten years to improve the health and well-being of the people of the Andes. We work through our international partners to empower local health care professionals to make sustainable change in their home communities.

When Manuela learned that FIBUSPAM was visiting her village and providing free general medicine consultations and gynecological exams she was very excited.
