The Ventanilla de Salud (Window on Health) is a program of the Government of Mexico developed by the Mexican Department of Health and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and implemented through 50 Mexican consulates in the United States in partnership with local health organizations. The Ventanillas provide reliable information on health topics, counseling and referrals to health services available and accessible in local communities. This program was designed to improve the physical and mental health of Mexicans living in the United States and to increase access to primary and preventive health insurance coverage and ensure culturally sensitive services in order to reduce the use of emergency services.
La Ventanilla de Salud Strives to promote a healthy lifestyle among its community members in the Austin and surrounding areas. For this reason, we will be offering health fairs every second Friday of each month. The services offered will be open to the public for free and no appointment will be necessary.
