Prefecturas (prefectures) are the governments of each Bolivian state. In Bolivia, states are called "departments". Each of the prefecturas is semi-autonomous (read more about what is meant by autonomy in Bolivia). Prefecturas are headed by a "prefecto" (prefect).

Ever since Bolivia's 9 states won a bid for autonomy in 2009, they are now officially called "gobernaciones" (state governments) and the prefects are now being called "gobernadores" (governors). However, many still call them prefecturas out of habit. This page was updated in August 2012
