Amazonia Foundation

School for Tribal Healthcare Medics

OVERVIEW

Many different facets of the project must work simultaneously to ensure the health of the Yanomami in Venezuela. The Venezuelan Ministry of Health has already created a working blueprint, which synchronizes all of these elements with numerous treatment programs. One of our many important projects is a school for indigenous healthcare workers.

The success of the overall project depends on an ongoing infrastructure. Medical doctors and specialists supply the knowledge and experience that is vital to health care. Trained community health workers will supply the day-to-day maintenance of the project in individual villages. We have found that the Indian people quickly pick up the necessary techniques and knowledge in a six-week course. They travel through the jungle much quicker than outsiders, survive better and are much less invasive to their own communities.
