Tena is an urban center in the Amazon rainforest in Ecuador. It serves as the primary economic and governmental hub for a network of surrounding indigenous communities. Due to isolation and poor infrastructure, communities have limited access to healthcare and other basic services. In recent years, these Amazonian communities have experienced rapid modernization through increased contact with outsiders interested in tourism, ecotourism, and oil prospecting. The area also faces environmental problems caused by the large-scale industrial extraction of natural resources in the Amazon. This has resulted in serious health complications for its inhabitants, including higher rates of cancer and skin diseases.
