This week, specialists from the Maternal and Infant Health Foundation (FUNDASAMIN) will start a new training cycle within the “Creciendo Juntos” (Growing Together) Program. This program is promoted by Pan American Energy (PAE) as part of the company’s CSR health-related initiatives in Golfo San Jorge. The Growing Together program has been running at Comodoro Rivadavia’s Regional Hospital for 13 years, with highly satisfactory results.
The first 2016 seminars will take place on April 14 and 15 at the Regional Hospital and will include sessions on Obstetrics and Neonatology. Participants will take part in on-site activities and discuss cases of hospitalized patients. Moreover, the schedule also includes an analysis of the initial management of preterm infants. Theoretical topics that will be discussed during the specialist seminar include:
✓ Dengue, Chikunguya and zika virus. Impact on pregnant woman and infants✓ Latest news on the Congress of the Society for Maternal Fetal Medicine✓ C-section and long-term results in infants
All training sessions are delivered by prestigious professionals from FUNDASAMIN: Roberto Votta MD, Liliana Vázquez MD, Ana Pedraza MD, Patricia Subotovsky MD and University Graduate Natividad Barreto.The “Creciendo Juntos” Program seeks to train healthcare professionals that treat pregnant and postpartum women and infants, thus helping decrease infant mortality, improve maternal health, improve the quality of perinatal care and help coordinate the public and public sectors, and union-provided health insurance organizations.
“Creciendo Juntos” has been executed in Comodoro Rivadavia for 13 consecutive years, with significant results. To this end, the contents of the action plan are developed and managed with the Department of the Motherhood, Infancy, Childhood and Adolescence from the Health Ministry of the Province of Chubut.
Silvia Gastón, from Institutional Relations at PAE, noted that “this program shows the successful relationship there is between the Government, the companies and the civil society. The future of our region lies mainly in taking care of the mother and the child and in having a group of prestigious specialists provide our healthcare professionals with the necessary tools and training. It is not by chance that the Program has lasted this long; since Pan American Energy became part of the project, connecting the institutions involved, the resulting improvements have shown us the way forward for the benefit of our community.” With these proposals, PAE reaffirms its commitment to the communities where it operates, offering healthcare professionals new training opportunities and developing partnerships and agreements with local organizations and institutions.
