DSEI Xavante improves service in the fight against COVID-19
The Multidisciplinary Indigenous Health Teams (EMSI) and the Rapid Response Teams of COVID-19 (ERRC) of the DSEI Xavante, in Mato Grosso, are improving the professionals for the fight against the coronavirus. Videoconferences, virtual meetings and readings are part of the DSEI routine.
For the District Coordinator, Gildo Azeredo, the practices are effective and bring greater security to the professionals who work in the front line. "They develop an agile work in the diagnosis and efficiency in the treatment, besides referring patients in a timely manner to the reference city when necessary", he says. Thus, time is optimized, and consequently, the numbers of deaths are reduced within the villages.
The DSEI also counts on the supply of medicines, inputs, rapid tests and EPIS for its employees. Some Base Poles and CASAI also have oxygen concentrators to help combat the coronavirus.
The Rapid Response Teams (ERRs) were established as part of the COVID-19 Combat Plan for the indigenous population to help control the disease in the villages.
To continue supporting the teams at the DSEIs, the Special Secretariat of Indigenous Health informed that the contracts of the staff could be extended until February 28, 2021.
The coordinator of DSEI Xavante, Gildo Azeredo, has requested SESAI to maintain the team until this date, sending the list for analysis in case the contractor has a remaining balance from previous Work Plans, since it´s not possible to hire again.
