CIES is the primary organization in Bolivia committed to improving access to sexual and reproductive health services. They focus on populations that are geographically isolated and have ambitious plans for expanding services to communities that are hard to reach. CIES operates sixteen clinics and four mobile health units in remote areas. It offers a wide variety of services, including gynecological care, contraception, screening for gender-based violence, HPV vaccination, and STI testing and treatment. In 2015, CIES provided more than four million services throughout the country. It also uses digital technologies to expand their reach, and strives to ensure that Bolivians have accurate information about their sexual and reproductive health and rights. The ICA Foundation began working with CIES in August 2017, starting with an initial donation of 300 units sent to La Paz and the program has received in total 1.300 units of LNG IUS so far.
