Departamento de Salud y Servicios a la Comunidad


Explanation:
This would be understood in a Latin American country for the term you have asked for help on. Servicios Humanos sounds literal and odd IMHO.

Best of luck!

MINISTERIO DE SALUD Y SERVICIOS SOCIALES


Explanation:
Aquí no tendría sentido el término "servicios humanitarios", ya que por este término se entiende más servicios de ayuda en situaciones de catástrofe, o por falta de medios económicos,etc...
