Summary

CUMIS UCV is a project created by medical students from the Universidad Central de Venezuela that contemplates 3 fundamental pillars seeking to ensure a multidisciplinary approach to the health problems we found in each community: health care, research, and education. We provide medical assistance and treatments to more than 6 remote and indigenous communities and develop educational and research programs that seek to prevent countless diseases.

Challenge

The healthcare system in Venezuela is remarkably weakened. Emerging and re-emerging diseases, nutritional deficiencies, high rates of unwanted pregnancies, shortage of medicines, poor access to health care assistance and the lack of basic sanitary services attempt against the welfare of Venezuelans. Also, the COVID-19 pandemic worsens this deterioration, affecting our most remote indigenous populations of the Warao, E'nepa, Jivi, and Pemon ethnic groups, depriving them of any medical assistance.

Solution

Under this project, medical outreach programs will take place in the communities of Maniapure, Delta del Orinoco, Wonken, Playa Colorada, Araure, and Caruao to provide them with assistance in 8+ medical specialties. In addition, nutritional programs will seek to decrease malnutrition rates in children under 5 years of age and pregnant or lactating women, while health promotion programs will aim to guarantee access to safe water, as well as to preventive measures against several diseases.

Long-Term Impact

Promoting inclusion, this project seeks to empower the community through education, developing knowledge and skills that can be transmitted from generation to generation on issues related to the prevention of infectious and non-infectious diseases, water, sanitation, and hygiene, mental health, sexual health, contraception, and family planning. Likewise, access to quality multidisciplinary health services and adequate treatments enhances the long-term welfare and lifespan of these populations.
