Medication, food and remote support for rheumatic patients
By Giovanna Morales - Project Leader
These past months, the situation for rheumatic patients has worsened due to COVID-19. On one hand, patients have started suffering the consequences of an economic crisis, limiting access to their treatment. On the other hand, being quarantined has also brought upon patients difficult emotional situations, such as depression, and anxiety to get on the streets. This has also complicated their access to medication and other treatments such as physiotherapy. For that reason, we have been looking to increase the amount of patients attended remotely, we have settled online and telephone support for them, as well as a system to provide medication directly in their houses when needed and videos on our facebook page to promote movement and physiotherapy at home. We have also allied with a group of businessmen and women to provide access to food for our most needed patients.
