Brigade and Promotores Ready!


Our UVM Brigade, pictured in their white coats in front, and the Promotores behind them are ready to begin their course.  The government representatives in red and purple shirts gave us a very warm welcome, including the Municipal President Ing. Carlos Andrés López Barbosa who is seated at the foot of the flagpole in the checkered shirt.  We were surprised by how many turned out!  More than 50 people want to be Promotores (Community Health Workers), including some of the people from the municipal government.

UVM is more the up to the task!  This time, the brought a mobile laboratory and lots of testing kits.  Andele!
