In Anzoátegui and Bolívar states, we continued working to reduce the high incidence of malaria, focusing on early diagnosis and treatment, vector control, and health promotion. These interventions led to a significant reduction in cases compared to previous years.
In July 2022, we opened a new project in Delta Amacuro—a difficult-to-access region crossed by many rivers and waterways—with the aim of bringing general health care to the remote, mainly indigenous, communities living there.
Meanwhile, we closed our projects in Caracas and Táchira after achieving our objectives to design and implement triage systems for patients with COVID-19 in health facilities, increase outpatient consultation capacity, and integrate a mental health approach to medical consultations. In Táchira, we also ran community-based health education sessions and reinforced referral systems.
