One of the objectives of WHO and PAHO is to strengthen management capacities, improve how resources, health institutions and the relationship with citizens are managed
The World Health Organization (WHO) and the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) are implementing 32 projects to strengthen the Venezuelan health system in coordination with the health authorities, the representative of both organizations in the country reported this Sunday, Cristian Morales.
“We are discussing with the Ministry of Health where the priorities are to be able to intervene in the areas of comprehensive community health, raise management capacities, deliver medicines and supplies, recover the infrastructure,” Morales said in an interview with Globovision.
Until April 30, the humanitarian response of the United Nations system in conjunction with allied organizations reached 942,000 people with some type of assistance in all the states of Venezuela.
He explained that these projects seek to provide support in medicines, supplies, in raising the capacities of health centers and Comprehensive Diagnostic Centers (CDI) so that they can receive the training that their workers require.
“We must improve the living conditions of human resources that have been operating for many years in very complex conditions, which has been exacerbated by the covid-19 pandemic, of course,” he added.
Other objectives of WHO and PAHO are to strengthen management capacities, improve how resources are managed, health institutions and the relationship with citizens.
He also said that Venezuela, unlike other countries in the region, has a pharmaceutical industry but that it must “not only raise production, not only raise the laboratories where the medicines and vaccines that Venezuela can develop are produced, but also raise the capacities of the Ministry of Health, the Institute of Hygiene to be able to ensure that this production is of quality ».
