The intercultural approach of these actions has to do with recognize and retrieve knowledge that women in the area and have been handed down from generation to generation care of your body, disease prevention and childbirth care, among other situations where there are cultural practices that are not recognized by Western medicine. The actions undertaken in these municipalities will allow enforce the Bolivian Constitution recognizes this knowledge and should also be for the current health system.

Following this approach, along with organizations like the National Confederation of Native Indigenous Peasant Women Bartolina Sisa (CNMIOCBS) and Private Voluntary Wiñay Medical Association, is occurring material on municipal management, health and sexual and reproductive rights, which will reach approximately 950 women leaders, youth and adult.

The ultimate goal of these actions taken by ApS is to reduce numbers as providing baseline management on 2010, which states for example, that only 46.2% of the population of the municipality of El Alto have heard about sexual and reproductive rights. If we talk about young women the percentage is lower than in adults and in the case of indigenous women figures show that women are more vulnerable on this type of information.
