January 2021: Guyana Women's Health Program

Transporting Medical Supplies
Transporting Medical Supplies

As 2021 begins, we are looking forward to this new year with hope and increased possibilities - one of our main goals is to be able to return to Guyana to hold our Women’s Clinics and expand current program offerings. A year ago, we would not have expected to be where we are today. The COVID-19 pandemic was in the early stages around the world, and knowledge of the future and how widespread this would become was very limited. Travel restrictions and new guidelines were being put into place on a daily basis, and weeks of limitations turned into months. 

These same travel restrictions remain in place around the world that keep Remote Area Medical and our very dedicated volunteers from returning to Guyana at this time. Before the pandemic, our volunteers had been teaching the OBGYN’s in the area about LEEP machines that help treat the effects of HPV in the Amerindian population. The machine is hosted in the national laboratory and techs there will be able to continue that education and reach more women for these services. With increased possibilities of vaccination and slowing the spread of COVID-19, we are looking to the future with hope that we will be able to return to the mission of treating more of the Guyanese population and increasing the scope of our preventative care to lessen the spread of the tropical diseases in the region as well.

We have not lost sight of the goals for this program - the desired outcomes are early detection, efficient treatment, and an increased range of services outside of the confines of the city and the patients in these remote areas. Our dedicated volunteers and staff remain committed to RAM’s mission of preventing pain and alleviating suffering by providing free, quality healthcare to those in need. The purpose of our mission has not changed and we are grateful for the donations and support to our Women’s Health Program in this time of global crisis. Your gifts and support will allow RAM to continue, and even expand, the reach of the mission. 

We cannot wait to go back.
