COVID-19 Prevention & Health Education in Colombia

Considering the global pandemic, many people and organizations around the world are facing challenges that affect their day-to-day activities. The health
system in low- and middle-income countries was not prepared to face this crisis, which has resulted in a saturation of health care capacity. This condition implies a health challenge that requires urgent mobilization of resources and is affecting the entire population.
Currently, healthcare systems are facing two significant problems: 1) physical and mental exhaustion of healthcare professionals along with the wear and tear of hospital infrastructures, 2) increasing overload of medical procedures. It is necessary to inform the public about preventive actions to avoid the spread of coronavirus to solve the health issue and lessen the burden on the health care system.

As Public Health professionals from diverse backgrounds and orientations, we have decided to join the cause and provide our support through the organization “HILFE”. HILFE is a newly formed international NGO located in New York City, USA, created by ten members, of which five are core
members. The Core Members are pillars of the NGO as they provide financial and logistics support to HILFE. Other members participate voluntarily providing additional financial and logistical support at will.
For  the non-profit organization "HILFE", we formally extend the request to establish a partnership with the Secretary of Health of Villa del Rosario, to provide educational program addressing to the migrants in Villa del Rosario, Colombia. We provide education on the importance of vaccination, safety standards and respiratory hygiene measures for COVID-19 and provide them with masks (manufactured locally by artisans) and
hand sanitizers.
