Bibliographical note

Funding Information:
This program is financially supported by local public–private collaboration. The public component is funded through resources provided by the INCN (van transportation, laboratory supplies, excused hours for contracted members of the NRC team), the Cañete regional health system (meals and lodging), and the government health insurance, Seguro Integral de Salud (SIS) (provides medicines for almost half of the patients). The private component consists of medication donations from local pharmaceutical dispensaries for patients who do not have SIS, as well as volunteer time and funds from the NRC team (other meals, office supplies). Official summaries of the clinic activities, services, and finances are generated for the regional government within a few weeks of each clinic’s completion. The data in the figure were generated from 7 summary reports for the 18-month period from March 2015 to October 2016.
