Project Report | Mar 16, 2022
Medical Outreach Program: Playa Colorada.

By Aixa Medina | Project Contributor

Our last medical-dental outreach program was held in Playa Colorada, Sucre State, Venezuela; where a total amount of 2380 consultations were made from 8 different specialties: Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Dermatology, Gynecology and Obstetrics, Dentistry and Oral Surgery, Bioanalysis, and Psychology.

Once again, we count on the support of the greatest physicians, dentists, bioanalysts, and psychologists, accompanied by students of medicine, dentistry, and psychology.

In the medical area, a total of 1658 patients were assisted, of whom 46.34 % (n=768) were adults and 53.65% (n=890) were pediatric patients (children and adolescents). Similarly, of these patients, the distribution by sex corresponded to 65.1% (n=1079) female patients and 34.18% (n=579) male patients.

The attendance by consultation corresponded to:

Pediatrics: 566 patients.

Internal Medicine: 422 patients.

Dermatology: 362 patients.

Obstetrics & Gynecology: 207 patients.

Contraceptive consultation: 101 patients.

In the dental area, 280 patients were assisted, among the different specialties: general dentistry, pediatric dentistry, oral surgery, and maxillofacial surgery. The distribution of attended patients was: 168 adults (60%) and 112 children (40%).

In the area of Psychology, 82 consultations were offered focused on Psychological First Aid. In addition, psychoeducational workshops and talks were given to almost 960 people, on the prevention of domestic violence, sexual and reproductive health, and breastfeeding.

In order to make a sustainable change through health promotion, 8 talks on the prevention of malaria were given. In addition, more than 1,500 condoms were distributed in 12 sexual and reproductive health workshops, and 5 workshops on proper handwashing were followed by the delivery of more than 370 personal hygiene kits to children in the community. Also, 14 workshops about menstrual hygiene were given, with more than 140 menstrual cups delivered.

At CUMIS we are firm believers that if there is a way to have a positive impact on another person's life, it is through the sum of each small act of kindness. We are quite sure that, with the help of the noblest hearts, we will continue to bring health to the most disadvantaged communities in our country.
