The initiative "Health and Telemedicine: consolidating and strengthening access to primary heath care in Peru and Bolivia" represents the natural continuation and evolution of AID 011.479 project, which started on 01/04/2018 in Peru. The objective is to contribute to the improvement of health conditions of all inhabitants of Apurimac - Peru - and La Paz and Pando - Bolivia - through the support of the Peruvian and Bolivian National Health Systems. Specifically, it intends to consolidate the level of access to the basic health services of the Peruvian National Health System and to increase access to the same services of the Bolivian National Health System by strengthening Telemedicine services, developing training systems for local health workers and organizing community awareness campaigns aimed at promoting healthy lifestyles. The beneficiaries of the projects are the most vulnerable populations of the Apurimac region in Peru and the inhabitants of La Paz and Pando in Bolivia. The criteria that led to the selection of the beneficiaries are the limited access to quality health services, the lack of professional human resources working in the area and the scarce financial resources invested in health by the government. This situation is worsened by the high exposure to infectious communicable diseases due to SARS-COV 2 virus pandemic. In the two High Provinces of Apurimac (Abancay and Cotabambas), through the introduction of Telemedicine, the most isolated and vulnerable populations has been reached. In Bolivia there are still great difficulties in integrating Telemedicine among the services offered by the National Health System, despite the fact that the medias launched it. In order to multiply the positive outputs of the AID 011.479 project, this initiative wants to extend its intervention to all of the seven Provinces of Apurimac (Abancay, Andahuaylas, Antabamba, Aymaraes, Chincheros Cotobambas, Grau) and to the two areas of intervention in Bolivia (La Paz and Pando) thus creating, through Telemedicine, an integrated health system which can guarantee efficient and effective feedback to the needs of the most vulnerable population. The proposed strategy therefore has a dual function: the first is to consolidate the intervention already in place in the Apurimac region, in Peru; the second one is to exchange and share good practices in order to strengthen the National Telehealth Program in Bolivia and to create a South-South cooperation system. The project focuses on the main problems of the national health systems, aiming at achieving four concrete results: strengthening health systems through technological innovations and training of health personnel; improving access to health care services provided through Telemedicine for the most vulnerable population of Apurimac - Peru - and La Paz and Pando - Bolivia -; spreading the culture of health and prevention and raising awareness on healthy lifestyles among the beneficiaries of the project; improving the quality of the health services and policies of the two countries through sector studies and exchange of good practices. The partnership between italian and local actors was conceived in order to achieve the above expected results, and to facilitate technical assistance and support for the activities of the beneficiary local authorities and strengthen the health policies of Peru and Bolivia. In Bolivia 4 fixed and 2 mobile points will be activated and adequate training is foreseen for the health personnel involved. Furthermore, a research on the impact of Telemedicine in the area in order to enhance the exchange of good practices between the two countries involved and to start a South-South and triangular cooperation system, will be caried out. read more close
