Established in the center of the capital Asunción, clinical Kuimba'e result of an initiative of the Paraguayan Association Somos Gay, with the financial support of the U.S. Aids Healthcare Foundation (NGOAHF ) through its Latin branch America. The clinic is headed by Dr. Iván Allende, who also oversees health issues in Somos Gay.

Any medical team (a generalist, a proctologist, a urologist, psychologists, nutritionists, social workers and nutritionists) are providing care free of charge and confidential.

The clinic will open in principle on Tuesday and Thursday from 15 am to 18 pm, from the last week of May 2013. On Facebook, the association Somos Gay evokes a rather open Monday to Saturday from 14 h to 22 h, care being offered 16 am to 20 pm.
