Honduras: Military Medical Brigades Improve the Health of Citizens

first_img“The medical care has covered both dental and medical specialties, and we have also offered care in psychology, psychiatry, dermatology, cardiology, gastroenterology, internal medicine, orthopedics, among others. In Tegucigalpa alone, we have provided free care to more than 45,000 people.” Organizations that participate in the clinics are providing a valuable service to Honduras, according to Dr. Héctor Galindo Castellanos. The Honduran Armed Forces concluded November 22 a series of clinics held throughout the year to provide medical care to the country’s poorest citizens. In addition to general medical care, the clinics have treated chronic, acute and emerging diseases, according to Lieutenant Colonel of Military Health Dr. Lisandro Valle. By Dialogo November 27, 2014 That’s where the brigades were inaugurated in February during an event attended by the President of the Republic and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, Juan Orlando Hernández. “It is a very important civic engagement for the country because part of having a better life is to prevent disease, prevent violence, and what we want is to have a healthy life,” he said, affirming the government’s support of the Armed Forces and Ministry of Security, who provided the clinics. Hernández also took the opportunity to encourage the public to actively participate in combating diseases that can be avoided with prevention – especially deaths caused by hemorrhagic and classic dengue, which can be fought by keeping clean homes and yards that can become breeding grounds for mosquitos. “It is a very important civic engagement for the country because part of having a better life is to prevent disease, prevent violence, and what we want is to have a healthy life,” he said, affirming the government’s support of the Armed Forces and Ministry of Security, who provided the clinics. Hernández also took the opportunity to encourage the public to actively participate in combating diseases that can be avoided with prevention – especially deaths caused by hemorrhagic and classic dengue, which can be fought by keeping clean homes and yards that can become breeding grounds for mosquitos. “The brigades were set up throughout the country in locations with an air unit, naval unit or combat unit, and particularly in the communities of Choluteca, Danlí, Juticalpa, Catacamas, Santa Rosa de Copán, Santa Bárbara, San Pedro Sula, Tela, La Ceiba, El Progreso, La Esperanza, Comayagua, Siguatepeque and Tegucigalpa,” Valle said. “This is the fourth time I’ve come to receive medical care this year because my health has improved a lot. Also, the doctors give me medicine and I can bring clothes from here to my family. For someone who is poor, this is very important,” said Julio Segovia, 83, who attended a November 16 clinic held in Tegucigalpa. In addition to medical care and medicine, participants also received assistance from stylists, who offered hairdressing services for men, women and children. The military also provided children’s games, music ensembles and clothing donations. At the Tegucigalpa Brigade alone, the military provided 4,200 medical consultations. For the 1,736 children in attendance, they set up bouncy castles and 13 piñatas, held 16 toy raffles, and launched 20 showers of confetti. In addition to general medical care, the clinics have treated chronic, acute and emerging diseases, according to Lieutenant Colonel of Military Health Dr. Lisandro Valle. Organizations that participate in the clinics are providing a valuable service to Honduras, according to Dr. Héctor Galindo Castellanos. More than 300,000 people across the country received care from the clinics in 2014, according to official estimates – and it’s expected that more than a million people will be treated over the next four years.

And they let them into this country out of carelessness therefore they knew it could happen. Now we must pray a lot so that malignant disease doesn’t bring the Dominicanpopulation to an end. God is very powerful and will not abandon us let us trust God and in the trained personnel.

Glen shows Curragh sparkle

first_img “She got a break to freshen her up after that. We took her away to the Curragh the other day and she worked very well. “Shane said she went up through the gears pretty good and he was delighted. She’s a very smart filly. Today was a big test and she came through it well. “I’ll talk to Pat (Downes, stud manager for the Aga Khan) now and he’ll discuss plans with his Highness. The Moyglare is the obvious target, but she does love it fast and she might have had enough for this year. She’s had her four runs and this is the time of the season that fillies can start to go off.” Gleneagles saw his Classic odds tumble after a smart turn of foot sealed the Galileo EBF Futurity Stakes at the Curragh on a day when Aidan O’Brien landed a four-timer. Press Association Winner of the Group Three Tyros Stakes at Leopardstown last time out, Joseph O’Brien’s mount stepped up to Group Two level with the minimum of fuss and was cut to 16-1 from 25-1 for the 2000 Guineas and Derby by Paddy Power. Settled in third as Convergence cut out the running, O’Brien got a lovely gap on the rail two furlongs from home and the response from the 8-13 favourite was taking as he shot through it to put the race to bed, although Vert De Grece ran on well for the Joe Murphy stable to take second, three-quarters of a length back. O’Brien snr said: “I’m delighted with that. He quickened up really well, but didn’t do much in front. He had to move when the gap opened on the rail. “He could possibly come back here for the National Stakes, but he has plenty of options. He has plenty of speed. “He’s a brother to Marvellous and a mile won’t be a problem. He’s able to change gears. He quickened up there and went two or three lengths up easily, but then started to idle.” The winning rider added: “When he gets there he just has a look, it wasn’t ideal getting there so soon, but when I got a little split I had to go.” Raydara ran out a convincing winner of the Group Two Debutante Stakes for Mick Halford and Shane Foley in the familiar colours of the Aga Khan. The daughter of Rock Of Gibraltar had last been seen finishing fourth to Jack Naylor in the Silver Flash Stakes, with the reopposing Qualify in third. Qualify hit the front two out on this occasion as Run The Red Light gave way, and the once-raced joint-favourite Lucida immediately gave chase, but she was soon joined by Raydara (11-1), who quickened in eyecatching fashion on the outside of the pack before scoring by half a length. Halford said: “I’m thrilled with her. When she won her maiden she made the running after finding herself in front, but I thought we made a little bit too much use of her the last day. We’re only learning about her. last_img read more
