"Healthy Ecuador, Let's Go" Program for Doctor Mobility to Ecuador

The Government of Ecuador has identified as a priority the strengthening of the support services to ensure medical care in hospitals and healthcare centers in the country, through the participation of foreign doctors.

Therefore, Ecuador launched in 2015 the "Healthy Ecuador healthy, Let's Go" initiative, a program that invites foreign or Ecuadorian doctors living abroad to contribute to the knowledge transfer to Ecuador.

The program gives physicians and researchers the opportunity to settle temporarily or permanently in Ecuador, to receive a monthly salary and financial aid and to contribute to meet the medical needs of the country.
