Central Crisis Committee meeting
SESAI holds Central Crisis Committee meeting
The Special Secretariat of Indigenous Health (SESAI) held another meeting with its Central Crisis Committee yesterday (4/2). On the agenda issues such as the distribution of 6,400 rapid test units to diagnose the coronavirus (Covid-19) and the delivery of 68,000 masks to the 34 Indigenous Special Sanitary Districts (DSEI).
On April 1, the SESAI Crisis Committee was reformulated in order to aggregate the participation of the DSEI teams, thus establishing a National Crisis Committee. This committee is composed of the Central Crisis Committee – with the participation of coordinators, advisors, directors and representatives of the SESAI office – and the District Crisis Committee, established by each of the 34 DSEI. Both will meet daily. The National Committee will meet weekly, through videoconference. With this new scope, SESAI aims to define and expedite new actions to combat the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) in indigenous peoples.
