Residents of Senahú communities lack effective health services when it comes to medical consultations, treatment of diseases, emergencies and surgeries.
In partnership with different organizations, we provide them with professional care through the following:
• Monthly primary health care missions:
Together with the Senahú Health Center, we perform prenatal control and conduct anthropometric measurements in children, reaching an average of 200 people per mission.
• Family planning missions:
These are held twice a year with the support of APROFAM, a Guatemalan association for family welfare. On average, 50 patients are treated per year.
• Annual dental missions:
Annual dental cleaning and primary care missions are held with the support of volunteer dental surgeons. On average, they benefit 200 people per year.
• Specialty missions:
Together with Utah Medical Outreach and Choice International, conferences are held every three years with doctors specialized in gynecology, pediatrics, dentistry, ophthalmology, otolaryngology, and general medicine. Different kinds of procedures are performed during these missions, including cleft lip and cleft palate surgery, hernia repair surgery, and hysterectomies, among others. To this day, more than 3,000 people have benefited from these missions, and 165 surgeries of different types have been realized.
