Free Health Care Clinic, Baralt Municipality
On September 30 of this year, the sixth Free Health Care Clinic was held where the following social care stations were established: Vaccination, General Medicine, Pharmacy, and Pediatrics, with talks on exclusive breastfeeding (EML), Legal advice, Gynecology with talks on family planning, Humanitarian Closet, and Hairdressing. The rate of illness in children is high regarding the bronchial tract, tonsils, and coughing. Eight cases of malnutrition in children were determined. In adults, the doctors conclude that there are many elderly adults with malnutrition issues plus health issues due to age. On the legal issue, the lawyer saw many cases of children that have not been presented since many were born in Valera, a city far from the place they reside, and due to economic issues, it is difficult for them to travel again to present their children. Medicines were delivered in different medical attention, and in conclusion, everything went smoothly, achieving the sectoral objectives
