Primary health care

The Primary Health Care Centre (CAP) is the first place you should go if you have a health problem or if you wish to prevent an illness. You will be assigned a CAP according to where you live. Schedule an appointment by Internet, or in person, and access the services available: diagnoses, prevention activities, and urgent or continuous care, among others.
