DSEI Xingu renews vehicle fleet and purchases oxygen cylinders for UAPI
The Special Indigenous Health District (DSEI) Xingu has renewed its vehicle fleet to provide more comfort, agility and safety to patients, health teams and to take supplies to four Base Poles, four Indigenous Health Houses (CASAI) and the DSEI headquarters.
The new fleet consists of 22 pick -up vehicles and will prevent the DSEI from paying for car rentals. "It will help us a lot to bring a better health care to the population of the Xingu," said the DSEI coordinator, Marcos Carvalho.
The DSEI Xingu serves a population of approximately 8,000 indigenous people from 29 ethnic groups in the state of Mato Grosso. Since the beginning of the pandemic, the District has worked with educational and preventive campaigns against the coronavirus.
In mid-January, the DSEI began vaccination and expects to vaccinate more than 4,200 indigenous people served by SasiSUS and specificities of ADPF 709 and indigenous health professionals in the coming weeks.
To help also at this time of pandemic, the District received 34 oxygen cylinders of 10m³ to serve 13 Indigenous Primary Care Units (UAPI) and 12 cylinders of 1m³ for emergency transport of patients in aircrafts.
