Nahua Indian medicine-woman Maria Concepcion (L), "huesero" or bone-man Martin Santiago (C) and traditional midwife Francisca Ocotlan, wait for patients outside the "integrated hospital" in Cuetzalan, some 185 miles (298 km) from Mexico City October 25, 2006. Struggling to draw inhabitants of non Spanish-speaking areas lacking basic services into a health system many mistrusted, officials in the heavily indigenous central Mexican state of Puebla enlisted some unconventional help. In five clinics attached to rural hospitals, medicine-men, midwives and village osteopaths or 'bone-men' work alongside conventional surgeons, radiographers and obstetricians.
