AbstractSome issues faced in this department include access to potable water, basic hygiene and day to day living in indigenous communities. The government works with these communities to protect the environment. Some solutions include building trails and small roads to link communities, using solar energy, and working with alternative medicines and traditional practices while combining them with Western medicine.
