WHAT WILL BE DONE
The solutions we propose are focused on the community and include several simultaneous actions. More than 500 individual medical attendances are planned, and several workshops will be promoted to raise awareness about Self-Care, given the high number of cases of diarrheal diseases derived from the consumption of contaminated water. There will also be training actions for local leaders and reinforcement of training for local health agents working in the region, under the guidance of Dr. Luiz Vilanova, also a doctor at Doctors without Borders (Médecins sans Frontières), with numerous experiences and missions around the world.
Also as part of this mission, we will carry out a research for digital inclusion with the objective of defining a future action plan, on the use of digital platforms adapted to the Amazonian way of life, that will make the field work of health agents more efficient. The adoption of the use of these technologies makes it easier to access information, to analyze and collect data, and to modernize processes, leading to a significant reduction in operational costs.
In a region where geography is highly penalizing because of logistical barriers, the use of technological tools will be the solution to many issues, and can facilitate access to many services, essential to the riverside population, such as health.
