Norcasia is a Colombian municipality located in the northeast of the department of Caldas. The health system has a Departmental Hospital for basic care, which is difficult to access for low-income families living in the villages. The population is prone to vector-borne diseases such as dengue fever, chicken pox and skin diseases that generally develop skin ulcers.

Families have strengthened their commitment to the care, attention and accompaniment of the elderly and sick.
