Preparing the medical kits


Whenever possible, Tia buys their medical supplies in bulk. Before a new project launch, we must count out and divide all the items. Bandages, sterile gloves, masks, IV bottles, syringes, cotton, rehydration solution, manual respirators, anti-spider and scorpion venom, alcohol and the medicines shown above, are expected to last about a year before they need to be replenished.


A year’s supply will not fit in the medical kits, so each promotora receives a large, sturdy bag full of items.
