A humanitarian aid project focused on making healthcare more equitable and accessible for marginalised population in the Aburrá Valley.
Marginalised people in Antioquia do not have easy access to first-contact, general medical care. This results in members of lower-income neighbourhoods deciding between seeking medical attention or work, frequently choosing the latter due to difficult living circumstances.
Here we will outline the exact issues that people from Antioquia face and propose solutions that can help alleviate these problems.
The proposed solution can be outlined two-fold:
1. Through Medical Brigades, give medical advice to the marginalised population to prevent diseases based on general check-ups.
2. With the support of our partners, we look for cases of diseases that we have treatment options for and guide the patient in getting further treatment.
