Some 1,000 people benefited from medical services offered as part of a multidisciplinary caravan organized respectively during the weekends of March 5-6 and 12-13, in the town of Tassoultante, under the prefecture of Marrakech.
Organized by the NGOs Mekkil’ and El Yassmine, in partnership with the Regional Directorate of Health and Social Protection of Marrakech-Safi and the Health Center of Sidi-Moussa, this caravan is part of the operation “Securaid”, aimed at meeting health needs and offering medical consultations, care and medicines to people in rural areas.
During this mission, some 80 doctors, all specialties combined, 70 nurses, midwives and 25 volunteers mobilized during these two weekends, placed under the sign of health and solidarity.
The supervising teams ensured a complete health course (general medicine, ENT, dental medicine, screening, cardiology, endocrinology, neurology, urology, ultrasound, etc.), as well as follow-up with private doctors and/or practicing at the University Hospital Center (CHU) Mohammed VI for comprehensive treatments and care.
In order to facilitate access to care, a local medical vehicle equipped with ultrasound scanners has been installed on the site for in-depth medical examinations.
Special monitoring was also given to screening for pathologies linked to breast and cervical cancer, as well as screening for HIV and excess cholesterol. This caravan was supported by a prevention and awareness campaign for the benefit of rural populations. “Securaid”, it is recalled, is part of the pilot project “Douars en vie”, the objective of which is the socio-economic development of a rural village, through 5 major axes, namely: education, health, development, sport and the environment.
