Bono "Juana Azurduy"
The subsidy, paid in 17 instalments, is conditional on the mother attending a state health centre for four prenatal check-ups, receiving medical attention during childbirth, and attending 12 postnatal check-ups for the mother and baby until the child is two years old.
The "Juana Azurduy" stipend is complemented by the Health Ministry's universal mother and child insurance plan (SUMI), which ensures free care for mothers giving birth in any hospital in the country, another healthcare innovation.
