|Spanish term or phrase: extramuros|
"Este programa tiene una limitada cobertura, por lo que uno de los retos es ampliar la misma en sus diferentes modalidades, en particular extramuros, que atiende las poblaciones más excluidas."
My current translation:
This programme [a Ministry of Health programme that provides care and education for children aged between two and seven, to help their mothers enter the workforce] has limited coverage, meaning that one of the challenges is to upscale its various manifestations, in particular those focused on rural populations??, which attend to the most excluded populations.
Anyone know what "extramuros" is referrring to here? Rural populations, or possibly the slums on the outskirts of the cities? The document is mostly focussed on rural populations, but it does also include marginal urban communities as the target population in some interventions.
|in outlying areas|
The outlying areas, or "extramuros," encompassed peripheral neighborhoods that had once been communally held indigenous lands which, after the 1874 Law of Expropriation, were gradually incorporated into the limits of the city (Barragán 1990: 224-228).
— s. m. pl.
2 Zona que está fuera del recinto de una población: capitaneaba a los chiquillos de los caseríos de extramuros cuando entraban en la ciudad.
As far as I know, the term originated in the period when towns had defensive walls (murallas) which marked their boundaries.
